Three men, Ilyas, Ghulam Abbas and Muhammad Asif, are scheduled for execution on 19 May; they were sentenced to death for murder. The victims' families are known to be negotiating with the convicted men's families, and it is possible that they will agree to accept payment of compensation in exchange for allowing the men's sentences to be commuted. Even if the negotiations fail, President Musharraf has the power to commute the men's death sentences
