Give Me Blogging, or Give Me Death!

I know my blog is really offensive, but I hope it doesn't constitute the death penalty. Oh well, until blogging do we part!

The number of state-sanctioned executions almost doubled last year. A report by Amnesty International shows Iran, Saudi Arabia and China as being responsible for 90 per cent of all executions in 2008.

Now, Iran is proposing a new law that could see the death sentence imposed on internet bloggers who post offensive material on the web. (in Iran, offensive will mean whatever the government wants it to mean)

Al Jazeera's Nazanin Sadri reports.
