Six persons stoned in northern Iran

The mullahs' anti-human regime announced that six persons were viciously stoned in public in Sari, capital of the northern Mazandaran province. The victims were three women, Fattaneh Danesh, Massoumeh Aini, and Marzieh Fallah, and three men, Kheirollah Javanmard, Ali Mokhtarpour and Parviz Hassanzadeh.

This brings to 52 the number of public executions since Khatami took office.

The Iranian Resistance draws the attention of international human rights organizations to the persistent and flagrant violations of human rights in Iran and urges their intervention to put a halt to these executions. These executions show that Khatami has neither the interest nor the power to make any changes in this medieval dictatorship.
