The governor of California has issued a reprieve to more than 700 inmates on death row, though they will not be released from prison.
His executive order stops any further executions, but only while he remains in office, a move viewed as controversial by many.
California has "the biggest death row in the US", according to California Governor Gavin Newsom.
