on-mumia27_aPhiladelphia (AP) – A federal appeals court is hearing arguments concerning the sentence of death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal (moo-MEE’-ah AH’-boo jah-MAHL’).

Hundreds of Abu-Jamal supporters gathered outside the federal courthouse in Philadelphia as the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments Tuesday over instructions given during his 1982 trial.

The U.S. Supreme Court this year ordered the court to reconsider its decision granting Abu-Jamal a new sentencing hearing in the 1981 shooting death of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.

Inside the courtroom, Faulkner’s widow sat with wives and family members of other fallen officers. Maureen Faulkner says Monday would have been the couple’s 31st wedding anniversary.

Abu-Jamal has become an international cause celebre among death penalty opponents.
