What does the USA have in common with China, Iran & North Korea?

It still carries out capital punishment.

According to the latest statistics from Amnesty International, China accounts for more such deaths than the rest of the world put together, although the precise figure (probably several thousand) is unknown because China – which uses the death penalty for no less than 68 offences – refuses to release the actual figures.

Setting China aside, Amnesty said at least 527 executions were carried out last year. Almost half of those took place in Iran (252). North Korea executed 60, Yemen 53 and the USA 46.
