Death Sentence for five over the murder of Al Aghbari

A court in Sana’a on Saturday sentenced five people to death and one two years in jail for committing and directly participating in the murder of the victim Abdullah al-Aghbari.

The court heard two hearings of the video evidence and the defendants’ responses before issuing their initial verdict.

The case of the killing and torture of Al-Aghbari several months ago shocked the Yemeni street.

Activists on social media circulated videos showing horrifying moments of the life of torture that lasted for hours and included beating, tasering and cutting al-Aghbari’s vein without any charges
