Two men hanged in north-west Iran

NCRI - The fundamentalist regime in Iran on Wednesday hanged two prisoners in the city of Ardebil, north-west Iran.

The regime's local judiciary office announced that the two men were hanged in the central prison of Ardebil.

It did not provide their names.

The mullahs' regime in Iran continues to execute more of its citizens per capita than any other U.N. member state. 

Some 2000 people have been executed during Hassan Rouhani’s presidency in the past two years.

A statement by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein on August 5 said: "Iran has reportedly executed more than 600 individuals so far this year. Last year, at least 753 people were executed in the country."

Amnesty International said on September 7 that “the Iranian authorities must end their unprecedented killing spree – more than 700 people have been executed so far this year."
