    Japan carries out three executions in one day

    Japan and the United States are the only two countries in the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations that use capital punishment

    Japanese judicial authorities Tuesday hanged three death row inmates in the first executions since Dec. 26, 2019 -when a Chinese citizen convicted in the 2003 killing of a family of four in Fukuoka was put to death-, and the first under Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. Justice Minister Yoshihisa Furukawa said he gave the order to resume capital punishment.
