Jalil Ahmad and Abdul Samir have been sentenced to death for the kidnapping and murder of 9 yr-old, Ali Sena Nowruzee. The family paid $65,000 ransom to the kidnappers only to find that the boy was already dead. Abdul Samir was a family bodyguard who relatives say the boy called “Uncle.” Herat's relative success economically has caused hundreds of kidnappings, with families of businessmen paying large sums to ransom their relatives.
