Mustafa Salman received a life sentence from an Iraqi court for his involvement in the 2004 kidnapping and murder of CARE country director Margaret Hassan. Two other defendants in the case were freed. Salman was charged with aiding and abetting the kidnappers. At the present, no parties directly involved with Hassan's murder have been convicted or sentenced. Hopefully court testimony will eventually shed a light on the details of Hassan's abduction and why she was targeted.
