Smuggler to hang

Convicted Australian drug smuggler Nguyen Tuong Van, 25, will be hanged in Singapore

on December 2, despite pleas from the Australian government for clemency. Nguyen

was arrested in Singapore's Changi airport in 2002 while carrying 400 grams of heroin

smuggled from Cambodia. Singapore's drug laws are notoriously harsh. Nearly 400 people

have been hanged in Singapore since 1991, giving it the highest per capita execution

rate in the world.
