More executions in Iran

Nine persons were hanged in public last week at three different locations in the city of Zahedan, southeastern Iran. A 22-year-old man was also hanged in public by crane in the city of Ilam (western Iran).

Unable to confront the growth of popular resistance, Iran's theocratic regime tries to step up such crimes, to create an atmosphere of fear and terror to curb social protests.

The National Council of Resistance draws the attention of international human rights organizations to the dramatic situation of human rights and arbitrary executions in Iran. The mullahs' anti-human regime executed or stoned to death at least 200 persons in public over the past year.
