Sri Lanka has started advertising for executioners in newspapers.

It comes after the country’s President declared he would reinstate the death penalty.

No one has been executed in Sri Lanka since 1976, with the last remaining hangman resigning in 2014.

The ad says candidates must be native men aged between 18 and 45 and have ‘excellent moral character’.
