Beijing pledges to reduce executions

Andrew Jacobs' write-up on this is good.

It's hard to know, but executions have probably been going down, and it's quite possible this means they'll go down a bunch more. But, it's hard to know the full story since the government doesn't release the data.

Still, this is an example of the international pressure over the years having a positive effect.
