Sayad Parwez Kambaksh, an Afghani journalism student who was sentenced to death in January for  for handing out a so-called anti-Islamic paper that he found on the Internet, told an appeals court on Sunday that his confession was the result of torture.

In February, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said he was concerned about the death sentence but would not attempt to intervene until the courts had their final say.
