Leaked memo: No internet until you clean your bathroom, Ecuador told Julian Assange

John Brown (no body) Silver badge

"Well, indeed. If you are too embarrassed to do it in public, perhaps you shouldn't be doing it."

There are quite a few countries which still have the death penalty, although far fewer of them actually still use it. There an interesting list of countries who have executed people in the last 5 years, an even shorter list of executions carried out last year, of which the USA is still a club member. I wonder if there a link between strongly religious countries and the death penalty?
