An American citizen has been sentenced to capital punishment on charges of drug trafficking.

The Court of Appeal upheld the verdict of the Criminal Court and sentenced the convict to death by hanging.

Defence lawyer Dr. Khalid Al-Kafifa said that his client, who was reportedly caught smuggling 11 grammes of cocaine, had no intention of dealing in drugs.

The US Embassy consul also attended the court session.
