Vietnam Executes Woman for Drug Dealing

A 48 year old woman was blindfolded, tied to a stake and executed by firing squad in Vietnam:

She was condemned to death after being caught trafficking 337-grammes of heroin from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City in 1998. Under Vietnamese law, anyone found in possession of 300 grams or more of heroin, or at least 10-kilograms of opium, faces the death penalty. At least 28 people have been handed the death penalty this year in Vietnam, while 19 people have been executed.
