Ohio suspends all executions until 2017 as lethal injection drug runs out

Supplies of sodium thiopental and pentobarbital dry up as other states also forced into moratorium by botched procedures or legal challenges

It is one of several states scrambling to obtain drugs for executions, since European pharmaceutical companies began blocking the use of their products in lethal injections.
