Afghanistan court sentences 5 to death for gang rape (Video)
KABUL (PAN): An Afghan appeals court on Monday sentenced five men to death for armed robbery and sexual assault for an attack on an Afghan family driving home from a wedding just outside Kabul.
The panel of three judges, led by Judge Sediqullah Haqiqqi, also invalidated the death sentences given to two other defendants, whose sentences were reduced to 20 years in prison for unrelated crimes. A lower court earlier this month sentenced the seven men to death.
