URGENT - 3 Iraqi Women to be Hanged by March 3,

UPDATE : I MADE A MISTAKE, THE ARTICLE IN QUESTION IS DATED 2007.THESE WOMEN ARE PROBABLY DEAD BY NOW. MY APOLOGIES.


I just saw this on Muslim Woman Org (read rest of article by clicking on link).


I quote:
 "According to attorney Walid Hayali of the Iraqi Lawyers Union, Wassan Talib, 31, has been charged with the killing of five police officers in an attack on the police, Zainab Fadhil, 25, was charged for an attack on a joint patrol of the Iraqi and U.S. armies in Baghdad whileLiqa Muhammad, 26, was charged with the killing of an official in the Green Zone in the course of a kidnapping. None of the three women was permitted to see a lawyer. The trials to which they were subject are illegal under international law. All three are prisoners of war with protected rights under the Third Geneva Convention. Their execution would not only be illegal but would also be immoral.."
