Two rapists of 7-year-old Yemeni girl to be executed
A Yemen court of appeals rejected pleas by two men convicted of raping a seven-year-old local girl and upheld an earlier sentence to execute them.
The two had confessed to raping Maram Waheeb in the western province of Taizz and were then sentenced to death by a court or first instance.
“Her mother said she had waited impatiently for this verdict and expressed her delight,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Sada said in a report from Yemen.
It said a large crowd of activists and other people who were in court chanted for the judge, adding that the two Yemeni men would be executed by a firing squad.
