USA: Mental disability concern as execution nears
Eddie Duval Powell, a 41-year-old African American man, is scheduled to be executed in the US state of Alabama on 16 June. He was sentenced to death in 1998 for a murder in 1995. His lawyers claim that he has a mental disability that would render his execution unconstitutional.
