US executes federal inmate for 1994 murder

US federal officials have put to death a man who abducted and murdered a teenage girl in 1994.

Orlando Hall, 49, was one of three people the Trump administration is planning to execute before Joe Biden takes over as president in January.

Mr Biden has said he would work to end the federal death penalty, which had not been used in 17 years before Mr Trump resumed them earlier this year.

Hall was the eighth man to be put to death by federal officials this year.
