Two Sudanese men sentenced to death for the rape and murder of a four-year-old girl were executed in a prison in Khartoum, the local press reported yesterday.

Motassem Abdallah Khairallah, 21, and Imad Tibn, 19, were hanged on Monday for raping and murdering Muram Awad Sadiq. Their bodies were handed over to their families, Al-Sudani reported.

The two men were sentenced to death last January, and to 100 lashes each in a case that caused outrage because it also took place during the Muslim feast of Eid al-Fitr in October 2006. - Sapa-AFP
