Scotland's government has condemned a ruling by a court in Pakistan sentencing British national Mohammad Asghar to death for blasphemy. A Scottish Government spokesman said:
The Scottish Government strongly opposes the death penalty in all circumstances. As a minimum we would urge the Pakistani authorities to abide by the moratorium they have on the death penalty.
Our thoughts are with Mr Asghar's family at this difficult time.
