    Iran has executed human rights activist Hashem Shaabani, a 32- year-old Arab-Iranian, for “waging war on God.” Other charges included sowing corruption on earth, propaganda against the Islamic Republic and acting against national security, according to a 2012 sentence handed down by the Ahvaz Islamic Revolutionary Court. A well-known and loved poet in Iran, Shabaani was originally arrested in 2011 and “confessed” the crime of terrorism on Iranian state-controlled Press TV after being subjected to months of torture and interrogation. However, in a letter that was published by Ahwaz News Agency in 2013, Shaabani said he had “never participated in...

    CHILLIWACK, B.C. — A former British Columbia hang-glider pilot whose passenger fell 300 metres to her death during a flight that was an anniversary gift pleaded guilty Friday to criminal negligence causing death. William Jon Orders was charged in the death of 27-year-old Lenami Godinez-Avila, who plunged from Orders’ hang glider shortly after takeoff during a flight above B.C.’s Fraser Valley on April 28, 2012. Orders was also charged with obstruction of justice over allegations he swallowed a memory card that may have contained video of the incident. It wasn’t immediately clear what would happen to that charge.

    Republican candidate for the Florida House of Representatives is in hot water after he agreed Monday that President Barack Obama should be hanged for treason. Joshua Black, an African-American, agreed to the idea of hanging the president after a Twitter user sent him the following public message: “I’m past impeachment. It’s time to arrest and hang him high.” “Agreed,” Black tweeted in response. Fla. GOP House Candidate in Deep Trouble for Saying President Obama Should Be Hanged Image source: Twitter.

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s estranged wife, Mary, who battled her husband’s rumored philandering by turning to alcohol and prescription drugs, hanged herself in a barn on their Westchester estate yesterday, sources told The Post. The 52-year-old mother of four — the latest victim of a family dynasty cursed with tragedies — may have taken her own life because she was haunted by her broken marriage, her friends lamented. “She was deeply troubled, abusing alcohol and prescription meds,” a close family friend said. “She had cause. She was used up and tossed away by Bobby. That was awful.”

    Milwaukee - Democrats appeared to have ousted one Wisconsin lawmaker but three Republicans survived recall on Tuesday, leaving two races still in doubt in the nation's largest ever group of recall votes. WisPolitics.com said that Republican state Senators in three of Tuesday's six races beat back Democratic challengers who targeted them for voting to curb the power of public sector unions in the state legislature. In a fourth race, the Democratic challenger held a comfortable lead with most ballots counted and appeared to have ousted a Republican who narrowly won in 2010. Democrats needed to win three of the six

    BAGHDAD — Saddam Hussein's cousin and two other former regime officials were convicted Sunday of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity and sentenced to hang for the brutal crackdown that killed up to 180,000 Kurdish civilians and guerrillas two decades ago. Two other defendants were sentenced to life in prison for their roles in the 1987-1988 crackdown, known as "Operation Anfal." A sixth defendant was acquitted for lack of evidence. Death sentences are automatically appealed. The most notorious defendant was Saddam's cousin Ali Hassan al-Majid, known as "Chemical Ali" for ordering the use of mustard gas and nerve agents...

    LONDON (AP)—There is nothing kind or gentle about a hanging. It is a process scientifically designed to break the neck and choke a person to death as efficiently as possible. In the recent Iraqi executions, former president Saddam Hussein and two of his accomplices, his half brother and the former head of Iraq's Revolutionary Court, were hanged from a gallows. In such judicial hangings, the victims are typically dropped a distance greater than their height through a trapdoor. At this point, the rope becomes rigid, and the force of the noose should break the victim's neck, causing immediate paralysis and...

    Two boys in the US and Pakistan have accidentally hanged themselves while apparently mimicking Saddam Hussein's execution. In two separate incidents, ten-year-old Sergio Pelico was found dead in Houston, Texas having tied a slipknot around his neck while on a bunk bed. Meanwhile, nine-year-old Mubashar Ali was hanged from a ceiling fan while playing with his ten-year-old sister in Pakistan. Police said the death in America appeared to be accidental and that Sergio, described by relatives as a happy child who was very curious, had been "experimenting". The day before, he had watched the news of Saddam's execution on TV...

    I don’t know if any of you have ever seen a man (or woman or child for that matter) hang, or seen the results of a hanging. I have. I don’t mean the kind of modern hanging, which at one time, not so long ago, was a semi-regular method of execution, where weights or other devices were used to quickly snap the neck of the person being hanged. I mean a real “Hanging.” The kind where a fella twists and turns and convulses and chokes and ropes and ligatures slowly strangle him and crush his throat and esophagus as gravity...

    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - After spending half his life in a Pakistani jail, Tahir Mirza Hussain is scheduled to hang on his 36th birthday for killing a taxi driver _ even though a court acquitted him 10 years ago. Hussain, a British-Pakistani, claims he is innocent. He was cleared by a secular court but retried and found guilty in an Islamic one. He now faces execution June 1 unless President Gen. Pervez Musharraf intervenes. His muddled case, spanning two decades, is emblematic of Pakistan's corrupt and bifurcated legal system, described by a leading rights activist as "flawed" and in desperate need...

    Jordan Hangs 2 for U.S. Diplomat's Murder Two militants were executed by hanging on Saturday for the killing in Amman of a U.S. diplomat. Laurence Foley, a 60-year-old administrator of U.S. aid programs in Jordan, was gunned down outside his Amman home on Oct. 28, 2002. Jordanian authorities have blamed al Qaida in Iraq's top operative, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, for Foley's death. The two militants are Salem bin Suweid, a Libyan, and Yasser Freihat, a Jordanian. They were part of an 11-member cell headed by the Jordanian-born al-Zarqawi. A Jordanian military court found 10 of the cell members, including al-Zarqawi,...

    COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (Reuters) - Sri Lankan hangman Suranimala has never seen an execution, confesses the sight of the gallows makes him a little nervous and lacks the most crucial tool of his trade -- a rope. The slight, soft-spoken 24-year-old has spent his first three years in the job pushing papers in the chief jailer's office at Welikada prison in Colombo, but all that is about to change. Sri Lanka reactivated its dormant death penalty last month after a near 30-year-lull to combat a surge in grisly crimes and contract killings, which means it is now finally time for...

    Amnesty defied as militants hang on to their arms By Jack Fairweather in Baghdad (Filed: 12/10/2004) Militants loyal to Moqtada al-Sadr failed to hand over substantial quantities of heavy weapons on the first day of a disarmament plan yesterday, bringing threats from the US military to launch more raids against the Shia cleric. Yesterday was meant to see Sadr's forces surrender their big guns in return for money from the Iraqi government. The amnesty was part of a deal to end months of clashes between militiamen and US forces in Sadr City, a huge Shia slum in Baghdad. An Iraqi...
