Judge condemns Asad Shah's 'barbaric killing'

A man who killed a Glasgow shopkeeper because he believed he had disrespected Islam is sentenced to life imprisonment.

Asad Shah, who was an Ahmadi Muslim, was stabbed to death by Sunni Muslim Tanveer Ahmed who had travelled from Bradford to confront him.

Ahmed was sentenced to life imprisonment, with a minimum of 27 years, for the crime that Judge Lady Rae described as "a barbaric, premeditated and wholly unjustified killing" of a "much-loved man who was a pillar of the local community".
