Mahsa's murderers sentenced to 30 years in prison

Two people convicted of kidnapping and killing six-year-old girl Mahsa were sentenced to 30 years in prison each on Sunday.

The girl was kidnapped and killed in Kabul in March by two individuals who related to each other as cousin and had a shop near the house of the victim.
Kidnappers were demanding $300,000 from the father of the victim who was a money dealer. As they knew that police were after them, they killed her.
Her killing caused outcry with many calling for death penalty.
The duo were sentenced to imprisonment by a primary court after the jury heard from prosecutors, lawyers and defendants.
The judge said that the culprits had right to appeal the decision.
