Amnesty: China executes at least 650 ahead of ‘horrific New Year’

From AFP, via Yahoo! News:

China, which puts more people to death than the rest of the world combined, has executed at least 650 in the two months leading up to the Lunar New Year, rights group Amnesty International said.

The executions reached a fearful crescendo in the last two weeks before the holiday, when 200 people were put to death, according to the London-based organization, which based its data on official Chinese media reports.
