Pakistan hanged Muhammad Nasrullah on Tuesday for the murder of a man over a family dispute in 1994. He was executed at a jail in the city of Multan in Punjab Province, bringing the number of executions to 55 since their renewal in December.
The country’s interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali announced a 30-day delay of the execution of another man, Shafqat Hussain, who was allegedly condemned to death as a teenager. Hussain's case has attracted international attention as his lawyers and family claim he was only 15 at the time he committed the crime.
Shafqat was convicted of killing a seven-year-old boy in 2004 in the city of Karachi, when he was allegedly 14 years old.
