The government of Pakistan has executed a man convicted of murdering a provincial governor in 2011 after the official called for reform of the country's strict blasphemy laws.
Mumtaz Qadri was hanged on February 29 in Rawalpindi.
Qadri, who was considered a hero by many Islamists, was a former bodyguard to Punjab Governor Salman Taseer.
He confessed to killing Taseer in response to his calls to reform strict blasphemy laws that carry a death sentence for insulting Islam.
Qadri shot Taseer 28 times at a market in Islamabad in broad daylight.
The judge who oversaw Qadri's trial was forced to flee the country after receiving death threats.
