KUWAIT CARRIES OUT FIRST EXECUTIONS IN FIVE YEARS.

Reports say Kuwait has carried out its first executions in five years, hanging seven people including two women, despite pleas for clemency from International rights campaigners.

According to the Public Prosecution Service, those put to death are an Ethiopean woman, another woman from Kuwait, a Syrian and a Pakistani man, and three Kuwaiti men.

According to reports, Kuwait has executed nearly eighty people since the nineteen sixties, mostly on murder or drug cases.

Meanwhile, Amnesty International has urged the country to impose a moratorium on executions.
