The mother of a four-year-old girl who was brutally raped and murdered by a sick paedophile claims “justice has been done” after the attacker was publicly executed and strung up on a crane.

al-Saket, who was found guilty of Safaa al-Matari’s abduction, murder and death, was shot five times with an AK-47 machine gun before he was strung up from a crane.
