A multi-media essay (with photos, video and text) about child prisoners that are awaiting execution in Yemen. Only five countries - Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Yemen - continue the execution of minors in violation of international law, which “prohibits, without exception, the execution of individuals for crimes committed before they turn eighteen.” The United States was included on that list until 2005 when the Supreme Court finally outlawed the death penalty for minors under eighteen. There are currently 77 juvenile inmates in Sanaa's Central Prison. 35 of them are at high risk of being executed.
