See What I Mean?

Recently I blogged about the domestic impact of the emerging international anti-death-penalty norm, even in countries who are unlikely to ever sign a new treaty abolishing capital punishment.

Today, al-Jazeera reports that China is Moving Toward Humane Executions:

"China has announced plans to step up use of lethal injection instead of shooting as the means of carrying out executions, a senior law enforcement official has said.

Jiang Xingchang, vice president of the Supreme People's Court, was quoted by the China Daily on Thursday as saying death by lethal injection was 'considered more humane.'"
