Iraq stays execution of man allegedly held at 16

Published: 12.13.12, 00:17 / Israel News

Iraq has suspended the execution of a Yemeni prisoner whose family claims was 16 years old when he was taken into custody, an Iraqi official and human rights advocates said Wednesday. Iraqi officials dispute that he was a minor at the time of his arrest.

Human Rights Watch earlier this week urged authorities in Baghdad to stay the execution of Saleh Moussa Ahmed al-Baidany. The group said his execution would have been Iraq's first in 25 years of someone who was a minor when detained. (AP)
