Two hangmen

Sri Lanka is advertising for two hangmen.

The country has not executed anyone since 1976, but President Maithripala Sirisena has said he’s now going to re-start hanging people in an effort to stamp out serious crime.

There are 18 prisoners on death row in Sri Lanka. Since 2014 three hangmen have come and gone, no doubt bored with just twiddling their thumbs.
