Hope and despair: Kathy Gannon on 35 years in Afghanistan

              FILE - In this Dec. 2, 2014 file photo, Associated Press journalist Kathy Gannon poses for a photograph in Toronto. Afghanistan's highest court has ruled that the police officer convicted of murdering Associated Press photographer Anja Niedringhaus and wounding Gannon almost one year ago, should serve 20 years in prison, according to documents sent to the country's attorney general on Saturday, March 28, 2015. The final sentence for former Afghan police unit commander Naqibullah was reduced from the death penalty recommended by a primary court last year. Twenty years in prison is the maximum jail sentence in Afghanistan, said Zahid Safi, a lawyer for The Associated Press who had been briefed on the decision by the Supreme Court.
