Activists, women and human rights groups Tuesday staged a brief protest outside Beirut's Justice Palace in Adlieh to demand that a man convicted of beating his wife to death two years ago be handed a longer sentence.The rally, organized by local NGO KAFA (Enough) Violence and Exploitation called for justice "for Manal Assi and all women". Nada had previously dropped her right to legally pursue Manal's husband.Manal was killed by her husband Mohammad al-Nhaily in 2014 .Nhaily was found guilty of bludgeoning Assi with a pressure cooker and sentenced to five years in prison. KAFA released a statement on the case last week explaining that the deadline to appeal the July 14 verdict ends Tuesday.
