China executes 5.492 in 2006

According to Hands Off Cain's 2007 report, there were at least 5.492 executions in China last year.

This figure is to be taken with caution. In China, statistics on the death penalty are classified as a state secret. Most of the figures disseminated by NGOs and the media are just estimates of the number of detainees executed every year.
