Is there any chance that Troy Davis' execution may be delayed?

A parole board in Georgia has denied a last-ditch clemency appeal by Troy Davis, a Georgia man set to be executed in a high-profile case on Wednesday for the murder of a police officer.

The case has attracted international attention and became a focus for opponents of the death penalty because seven of nine trial witnesses have since recanted their testimony and his supporters say he may be innocent.

Davis is due to die by lethal injection at 7 p.m. local time today at Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson, Georgia.

Today on American Morning, Paul Callan, CNN legal contributor, discusses the case and explains if there is any way that the execution could be delayed.

    No, because the United States think they have rights over everybody and this government have no justices for black people, this government do whatever they want to them. The United States, have lied and murdered black people for hundredths of years in America, they are not going to stop now and do the right thing. Allah, is watching them and they are going to get what they deserve. Also, the Palestinian are going to get their land back the prayers have already been said 40 – years ago.
