    I came across this while reading Glamour magazine. Thought it was interesting.

    I didn't read in the link what type of crimes these children are being executed for. Do you happen to know?

    Well, the articles don't say what the teenagers were accused of but it did say 21 of them have been executed since 1990 and another 33 are on death row--they probably stole a loaf of bread or something

    I don't know the stories behind them all, but one young lady who was 17 was sentenced to death for stabbing a man who was raping her.

    One of my friends on MySpace has dedicated her page to this cause. She is trying to bring awareness to and help stop child executions all over the world. Here's the link if anyone wants to check it out.
