It not only details the death sentences and executions in 2012, but also explains how these numbers compare to the past and present.

Urgent Action Update: Three Men Face Imminent Execution (Bahrain: UA 47/15)
On 9 January the Court of Cassation in Bahrain upheld death sentences against three Bahraini men. It also upheld life sentences against seven others and the revocation of the nationality of eight of them. All ten men were convicted following an unfair trial in relation to the March 2014 killing of three policemen.
Amnesty International is concerned about the fairness of proceedings leading to the trial and conviction of Leonard Peltier, an Anishinabe-Lakota Native American who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents.
