In the US state of Arizona, the execution of a convicted murderer has been botched.

Joseph Wood took nearly two hours to die, when it should have taken just 10 minutes. He was on death row for the murder of his ex-girlfriend and her father in 1989.

Wood's prolonged execution has been condemned by opponents of the death penalty.
