Amnesty International to Iran: Halt Kurd student execution

Amnesty International appealed to Iranian authorities to commute the death sentence of a Kurdish law student who is set to be executed on Sunday.
Habibollah Latifi, 29, was arrested in October 2007 in Sanandaj, the Kordestan provincial capital, north-western Iran.  He was convicted of "enmity against God" (moharebeh) and sentence to death by an Iranian court, in connection with alleged membership and activities on behalf of the Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan (PJAK), a militant Kurdish nationalist group.
