Texas Running Out Of Lethal Execution Drug



Texas is running out of its execution drug, raising concerns that two executions set for next month may be delayed. The US state's Department of Criminal Justice said its remaining supply of pentobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. The state - which carries out nearly half of executions in the country - has already put 11 prisoners to death this year and has at least seven more scheduled for the coming months.
