Pakistan hanged nine death row convicts today as the mother of a man charged as a child with murder and due to be hanged this week begged the president for mercy.

Today's hangings bring the number of executions in the past two days to 21 and to 48 since an unofficial moratorium on capital punishment was lifted in December.

Twelve were executed yesterday.

However, the Interior Ministry said it did not know how many people had been executed in total.
