Ethiopian woman among seven executed in Kuwait

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 a woman from Ethiopia and another from Kuwait, a Syrian and a Pakistani man, and three Kuwaiti men.

Kuwait has executed nearly 80 people since the 1960’s, mostly on murder or drugs cases. 

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