Supreme Court rejects appeal
for Troy Davis on death row
(front page)
ATLANTA—On March 28 the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis’s appeal, potentially clearing the way for the state of Georgia to execute him. An international campaign has forced the state to stay the execution three times.

Davis was framed on charges of killing a police officer in Savannah, Georgia, in 1989. Since the 1991 trial seven of nine witnesses pressured by the police to testify against Davis retracted or changed their testimony.

Davis’s supporters are preparing an international day of protest.
