May 29, 2013: Authorities in El-Obeid prison in Northern Kordofan State, Sudan, have hanged four people convicted of killing a farmer in Hamra Al-Sheikh locality.
According to Akhir Lahza newspaper, the hanging took place amidst tight security and was witnessed by relatives of the deceased farmer, who declined to waive their rights to witness retribution for their kin.
After the execution the prison authorities handed over the corpses of the four convicts to their respective families.
The four were convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to death by an El-Obeid court. In total, five people were convicted of the death of the farmer but the other one was executed last month. (Sources: sudanradio.org, 29/05/2013)
