MINSK – The mother of one of the men sentenced to death for the bombing of a metro station in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, that killed 15 people has asked President Alyaksandr Lukashenka to postpone her son’s execution for at least one year.

Lyubou Kavalyova told RFE/RL that she has asked Lukashenka to delay the execution until after her son receives a respone to his appeal to the United Nations over the death sentence.

Lukashenka on March 15 rejected a formal appeal made by the two convicts against their execution.

Kavalyova's son, Ulad Kavalyou, and Dzmitry Kanavalau were found guilty in April 2011 of setting off a bomb in an underground station in Minsk. They were sentenced to death in November.

Fifteen people died and more than 2,000 were injured in the attack.
