Hamas won’t relent on executions

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Gaza’s Hamas government is sticking to plans to carry out more executions and to do so in public for the first time, despite new protests by human rights groups Tuesday.

Among those facing death by hanging in coming days is Hani Abu Aliyan, 28, convicted of two killings, including sexually assaulting and bludgeoning to death a boy when he himself was only 14. His lawyer alleged that Abu Aliyan confessed to that killing under torture.
