Fearing the growing public discontent, especially among the young people, the clerical regime has resorted to public hangings and arrests of teenagers.
Since Khatami took office, the regime's media have reported the execution of more than 500 people.
The Iranian Resistance calls on international human rights organizations to condemn these crimes, including the execution of teenagers who have not reached the legal age.
