South African prison made into museum

South Africa is poised to shine the spotlight on the gallows at Pretoria prison, one of apartheid's most chilling legacies.

More than 130 political prisoners were hanged at the prison. It has been turned into a museum and a living protest against capital punishment.

Karen Allen was given exclusive access to what was once South Africa's notorious death row.
