Troy Davis has been executed by lethal injection despite widespread and significant doubts over the safety of his original conviction.
Amnesty International has urged the USA, the only country that carried out executions in the Americas in 2009, to end its use of this cruel and inhumane punishment.
Amnesty International has teamed up with other human rights organisations to campaign for a stay of execution. The protest concerns Troy Davis who is accused of killing a police officer in the state of Georgia, in the USA.
