    Islamabad: Pakistan Army Chief General Raheel Sharif has approved the execution of six terrorists who were sentenced to death by military courts, a media report said Friday.

    "Chief of Army Staff today signed death warrants of six hardcore terrorists convicted by the Field General Court Martial in accordance with law," Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asim Bajwa tweeted late Thursday.

    The announcement came a day after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that moratorium on execution has been lifted, Dawn online reported.

    The army withheld the names of the convicts and said their names will be notified once the executions are completed.

    "The six cases cleared for execution had legal procedures completed," the media report quoted a military spokesman as saying.

    The convicts were sentenced in cases relating to the Pakistan Army General Headquarters (GHQ) attack and for an attack on a military camp near River Chenab, beside others.
