EXECUTIONS OF JUVENILES SINCE 1990 The use of the death penalty for crimes
committed by people younger than 18 is prohibited under international human
rights law, yet some countries still execute child offenders. Such executions
are few compared to the total number of executions in the world. Their significance
goes beyond their number and calls into question the commitment of the executing
states to respect international law. Since 1990 Amnesty International has documented
129 executions of child offenders in 9 countries: China, the Democratic Republic
of Congo, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, the USA and Yemen.
Several of these countries have changed their laws to exclude the practice.
Executions of child offenders represent a tiny fraction of the total of executions
worldwide recorded by Amnesty International each year. The USA and Iran have
each executed more child offenders than the other eight countries combined
and Iran has now exceeded the USA's total since 1990 of 19 child executions.
The first table below gives statistics on executions of child offenders recorded
by Amnesty International since 1990. The second table gives case details. RECORDED
