Mirza Tahir Hussain: Times interview

Mirza Tahir Hussain, the British citizen sentenced to death by a sharia court in Pakistan after being cleared in a criminal case, has told his story to the Times; not surprisingly since the Times played a major role in highlighting the injustice of Hussain's case. Indeed, previously the Times managed to interview Hussain in Rawalpindi jail.

The first instalment of the most recent interview deals with the Hussain's arrest and imprisonment, culminating in the original trial.

A second item gives some background on executions in Pakistan.
