    A convicted killer due to be hanged for murder has been spared after the victim's mother had a last-minute change of heart.

    The 18-year-old victim's parents were expected to kick away the chair supporting the condemned man, named as Balal, at the public execution and send him to his death.

    But once he was blindfolded and the noose put around his neck, she instead slapped his face and said she forgave him.

    I think they would have to release him (unless there were other charges).

    She's a better person than me.
    I would have kicked that chair!

    You might not have. Chances are good this was a "conflict" that went too far and not just a cold blooded murder, things were probably complicated and the players involved likely knew each other.

    I am verrry happy that I was not born or live in the Middle East. Some of these stories make the TV series game of thrones look like a happy fairy tale.
    Scary.
