Death penalty in the world

Double-murderer Kenneth Lee Boyd became the 1,000th prisoner executed in the United States since the reinstatement of capital punishment in 1977. Boyd was put to death by lethal injection on Friday Dec. 2, 2005. Costa Rica, which abolished the dead penalty in 1877, is one of 91 countries in the world that has outlawed capital punishment for all crimes. (Graphic/Reuters)
