Killer of Zainab Fatima Ameen executed in Lahore


LAHORE -- Pakistani authorities executed a man Wednesday (October 17) convicted of raping and murdering a 6-year old girl, Zainab Fatima Ameen, an incident that shocked the country and sparked riots earlier this year.

Imran Ali, 24, was handed four separate death sentences for the crime, which took place in January in Kasur, Punjab Province.

He also confessed to eight attacks on children in the city, including five murders.

"He was hanged this morning in the presence of a prison official and the father of the victim," an official at Lahore's central prison, where the convict was executed, told AFP.
