Amnesty International urges Iran to stop execution of Kurd Habibollah Latifi, 29

Amnesty International has appealed to Iran to commute the death sentence of an Iranian Kurdish student who it says is expected to be executed on Sunday.

Habibollah Latifi, 29, has been found “guilty of waging war against God” by co-operating with a banned Kurdish rebel group – a charge he denies.

The human rights group says his trial was held behind closed doors with no legal representation and was unfair.

It says Tehran should now “show clemency” and halt the execution.

Between 20 and 30 people protested on Saturday night outside the Iranian embassy in Paris against the impending execution. Several chained themselves to railings.
