Attorneys for two Pakistani doctors found guilty of providing financial and medical assistance to Islamic militants say the men have filed appeals of their convictions.
The doctors, brothers Akmal and Arshad Waheed, have been sentenced to seven years in prison. The doctors were arrested last year on suspicion of links to Islamic militants. Their criminal activities were said to include providing medical treatment to militants. Authorities also allege that they helped establish an extremist group known as "Jundallah," which is suspected in a series of attacks in Pakistan. They were also accused of sending militants to terrorism training in the town of Wana, near the Afghan border. Both men deny doing anything wrong, saying they only gave medical treatment to war-wounded people from Afghanistan.
