Efforts Intensify to Save Game Developer Who Was Sentenced to Death in Iran

Kotaku - A day after news broke that U.S. citizen and former game developer Amir Hekmati was sentenced to death by the Iranian government, a glimmer of hope emerged that the 28-eight-year old's life might be spared.

"The news is not positive, but we try to reassure [his family] that it is not over," Pierre Prosper a former diplomat who is now working with Hekmati's family to secure the American's release from the Iranian regime, told CNN. "We will engage with the government and we hope that they will show compassion."

The story is too old to be commented.
