PALESTINIANS EXECUTE COLONEL WHO RAPED BOY
Colonel Ahmed Atyah Abu Mustafa, 48, was arrested Wednesday after a 6 year old boy identified him as the man who had kidnapped and raped him five days earlier. A firing squad executed him overnight just hours after he was convicted and sentenced to death. He denied the charges. Several Palestinian Authority officials and members of the legislative council as well as relatives of the raped child attended the execution.
