Islamabad, April 1: An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan on Wednesday issued death warrants for seven individuals convicted of being part of a mob that lynched two brothers in 2010. The court issued the warrants after the Lahore High Court rejected appeals submitted by the seven convicts, Dawn online reported. The court also set the date of their hanging for April 8. However, the convicts have the right to appeal in the Supreme Court. In August 2010, Hafiz Mohammad Mughees Sajjad, 18, and Mohammad Muneeb Sajjad, 15, were lynched by dozens of people. (IANS)
