NEWS BRIEFS
Sialkot, 19 June (AKI/DAWN) - A Pakistani judge has sentenced a man to death and life imprisonment on charges of blasphemy and desecration of the Muslim holy book, the Koran...

Shafiq Latif of Kulluwal in northeastern Pakistan is alleged to have made derogatory remarks against the Prophet Mohammed and desecrated pages of the Koran on 17 March 2006. Local police arrested him under the country's 'blasphemy act' and he was also fined 500,000 Pakistani rupees (4700 euros). A conviction for blasphemy in Pakistan carries the death penalty, although Latif can still appeal his sentence. Sialkot District and Sessions Judge Suhaib Ahmad Roomi told reporters that the verdict was based on Islamic laws. Banners and posters welcoming the verdict were displayed in different locations in the local area.
