Pakistan is set to execute a disabled man as activists said it was nearing its 300th hanging in under a year, with Amnesty slamming Islamabad Tuesday for "shamefully sealing its place among the world's worst executioners".In a statement Tuesday, Amnesty said it has recorded 299 executions in Pakistan since the death penalty was controversially reinstated following a Taliban mass killing at a school in Peshawar last year that was the country's deadliest ever extremist attack.In 2014, 607 people were put to death in 22 countries, according to Amnesty, though that figure does not include China, where the number of executions is believed to be in the hundreds but is considered by authorities to be a state secret.
