The US government has carried out its first execution in 17 years after the supreme court ruled 5-4 in a early Tuesday morning decision to dismiss a lower court injunction on 3 executions scheduled for this week and other and another set for next month.
DL was put to death with a dose of powerful sedative pentobarbital at a federal prison in Indiana hours after the court released its ruling. US Attorney General WB said L was a member of white supremacist organization who in 1996 brutally murdered W and N along with her 8-year-old daughter S. After rather than shooting them with a stun gun, Lee duct taped plastic bags around their heads, weighed down each victims with rocks and drowned the family in the Illinois bayou.
L was originally due to be executed yesterday but hours before that happened a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction on the grounds that courts should have more time to review whether the method of execution violates constitutional protections against cruel and unusual punishment.

Britain's government has backed track on plans to give Chinese telecommunications company Huawei a limited role in a new mobile phone network in a decision with broad implications for relations between London and Beijing. AP's correspondent D has this report.
Britain says the ban was in place after US sanctions made it impossible to ensure the security of Huawei equipment,forcing it to start turning to other suppliers for components. The US threatened to sever an intelligence-sharing arrangement with Britain because of concerns the equipment could allow the Chinese government to infiltrate British networks. ____ secretary D says the decision would delay the 5G rollout and cost millions of pounds. The decision gives British telecoms operators until 2027 to remove Huawei equipment already in Britain's network.
