Excerpts from http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/4926224.stm

At least 20,000 prisoners are awaiting execution worldwide and more than 2,000 were put to death last year, a leading human rights group has said.
In its annual survey on the death penalty, Amnesty International said 94% of the 2005 executions took place in China, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the US.
...
There were 2,148 known executions in 22 countries in 2005, Amnesty International said, down from a record level of 3,797 in the previous year.

At least 1,770 executions took place last year in China, where a person could be sentenced and executed for non-violent crimes including tax fraud, embezzlement and drug offences, the UK-based group said.

It was a worry that that high profits behind the country's organ transplants from executed prisoners may act as an incentive to maintain the death penalty, the group added.
