Egyptian businessman Hisham Talaat Mustafa sentenced in pop star's murder

May 21, 2009 |  3:44 pm

Anyone following the sordid, fascinating case of the murder of Lebanese pop singer Suzanne Tamim saw some resolution today when Hisham Talaat Mustafa, one of Egypt's wealthiest businessmen and a former member of that country's Parliament, was sentenced to death paying a former police officer $2 million to kill her in her Dubai apartment.

The Times' Jeffrey Fleishman has much more on this case, which has gripped the Middle East since Tamim's grisly murder last year.
