Bangkok, Thailand, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- A Bangkok, Thailand, prison has announced plans
to broadcast live video of death row prisoners' final moments over the Internet,
the BBC reported Monday.
Rights group Amnesty International has said the plan is an infringement of
human rights. The group has called on Thai authorities to the plan.
A spokesman for Bangkwang prison said the videos will highlight the risks of
drug dealing, a capital offense, and other crimes. Nearly 1,000 of Thailand's
6,000 prisoners are on death row.
