Calls for Halting Execution

An elderly Pakistani mother is making an emotional appeal for authorities to halt the execution of her son, who was sentenced to death for a juvenile crime at age 14. Shafqat Hussain was sentenced in 2004 by a court in the port city of Karachi after it found him guilty of killing another boy. Hussain’s 87-year-old mother Makhni Begum on Saturday pleaded with the government to cancel the execution, AP reported. Hussain is expected to be hanged at a jail in Karachi on March 19.
