Report: Iran execution halted - CNN.com: "lawyer for a Kurdish-Iranian law student who was scheduled to be executed Sunday says the sentence has been halted, pending an investigation of what his legal team says are irregularities in the case, the semi-official Iran Students' News Agency reported.
Official state media was silent on the matter.
Human rights organizations had appealed to Iranian authorities to call off the execution of Habibollah Latifi, who is charged with security-related crimes.
'We are urgently appealing to the Iranian authorities to show clemency, halt the imminent execution of Habibollah Latifi, and commute his death sentence,' Malcolm Smart, Amnesty International's director for the Middle East and North Africa, said Saturday.
Latifi is one of at least 16 Kurds facing execution on various national security-related charges, including moharebeh -- which translates to 'enmity against God' -- according to published reports."
