United Nations court orders Pakistan to halt execution of Indian 'spy'

"Pakistan's security is so important and we have to maintain our fundamental sovereign right", he said.

India has argued in the International Court of Justice that Pakistan violated international laws by not allowing it access to Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav.

Pakistan shall take all measures at its disposal to ensure that Mr Jadhav is not executed pending the final decision.

In a decision that described as "unanimous and binding", 11 judges at the United Nations court said yesterday that Pakistan should have provided India consular access to Mr Jadhav.

The smaller iPad Pro should be coming next month
But Apple is planning to launch something this year - previous rumors have suggested a smart speaker and possibly a new iPad Pro. The iPad mini was lauched in 2012, and was expected to fend off competition from Google Nexus and Amazon Kindle Fire.

While presenting arguments, Pakistani counsel had informed ICJ that Jadhav, 46, was arrested in March previous year in the restive Balochistan province.

India has denied Jadhav was a spy, and accused Pakistan of "egregious violations of the Vienna convention" by denying him access to legal counsel and consular visits, and refusing to reveal the charge sheet against him.

"India has the right to seek consular access for Jadhav", he added. It says that ICJ's decision is not only an open interference in Pakistan's affairs, it is also a conspiracy against it.

A statement from the attorney general's office said the ICJ wanted "the status quo (to) be maintained" in Jadhav's case and the provisional measures were "without prejudice to the final determination" of the case. The court claimed that Jadhav was an Indian intelligence agent and a threat to Pakistan.

2 school bus crashes have killed 2 drivers, injured students
A teen died in a rear-end crash between a school bus and another vehicle in northern Wisconsin died in the wreck. Pierce said two of the 19 students involved in the crash reported to classes Friday.

Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistan military court on April 10 on charges of espionage and subversive activities.

India has appealed to the world court that Pakistan did not heed an worldwide treaty that granted diplomatic immunity to foreign nationals charged with capital crimes.

The UN's highest court rejected Pakistan's argument that it had no jurisdiction in Jadhav's case as it involved national security issues and accepted India's contention about the urgency of the matter.

Jadhav was allegedly arrested from Pakistan's restive Balochistan province on March 3, 2016. Pakistan was also accused of denying Jadhav a fair trial in violation of global human rights laws.

Slaven Bilic: 'West Ham United have enough leaders'
Since Slaven Bilic took over as West Ham manager in the summer of 2015, the Hammers have lost a league-high 41 points from winning positions.

Pakistani representatives, however, told the court Jadhav had confessed to having been sent by India "to wage terror on the innocent civilians and infrastructure of Pakistan". He said Pakistan's reply to ICJ was in line with Article 36 (2) of the Vienna Convention that Pakistan does not recognise the jurisdiction of the ICJ in this case.
