The man convicted of killing two CIA employees was executed last night, amid protests in his native Pakistan and threats of terrorism. Mir Aimal Kasi was put to death by lethal injection. Meghan Muldoon reports that corrections officials say there were no complications and, except for added security, nothing out of the ordinary.

The University's Board of Visitors approved a 250-dollar tuition increase, effective next Spring.
The school this year found out its losing three million dollars from state budget cuts, but, officials say the tuition increase will make up more than half of that.
The rest will come from the elimination of about 55-workers, through an early retirement program.
If necessary, the university will also furlough ALL employees for up to two days.
Officials say it could save the school about 300-thousand dolllars.

[VO-NAT]

Aimal Khan Kasi (meer ah-mahl KAH'-zee) was killed by injection last night at the Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt. The execution came after the U-S Supreme Court declined to grant him a stay and Governor Mark Warner rejected an appeal for clemency.

Kasi killed 38- year- old Frank Darling and Lansing Bennett as they sat in their cars outside the agency's McLean headquaters in January of 1993.

The State Department had warned Kasi's execution could trigger retaliatory acts by Pakistanis and other anti-American group. A group of about 80 protestors gathered outside the prison last night without incidence.
