Pakistan executions on the rise

It’s almost seven months since the attack on a school in Peshawar that left more than 140 children dead and shocked the world. That atrocity prompted Pakistan to lift its moratorium on the death penalty. Since then, it’s become one of the world’s most prolific executioners, with 178 inmates executed. There are also concerns that many of those on death row were forced to give false confessions under torture or were under age at the time of their sentencing.
