Four terror convicts executed in Pakistan

Four prisoners, convicted for attacking former Pak President Pervez Musharraf, were executed on Sunday at a district jail in Faisalabad. Zubair Ahmed, Rasheed Qureshi, Ghulam Sarwar Bhatti and Russian citizen Akhlaque Ahmed were shifted from the central jail in Faisalabad to another district jail late Saturday to be hanged. Family members were allowed to meet the convicts before the hanging. Strict security measures were put in place with additional contingents of security personnel deployed on the routes leading to the district jail. Similar preparations are underway in Lahore for the execution of four other prisoners in Kot Lakhpat central jail. The executions are expected to be carried out within the next two days, media reports said. All the roads leading to the detention facility in Lahore have been blocked and mobile phone jammers have been installed around the jail premises.
