Iran mulls death penalty for offensive blogs  

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 law that could impose the death sentence on bloggers who post offensive material.
