Gambia: More Prisoners Risk Execution

The rights group Amnesty International is warning that more prisoners in the Gambia risk execution following official confirmation that nine other death row inmates were put to death last week.

"One can only imagine the terror the death row inmates and their families are facing knowing that at any moment they could be pulled from their cells and put in front of a firing squad," the group laments.
