Two men hanged in northern Iran city

NCRI - Iran's fundamentalist regime on Saturday hanged two men in the northern city of Rasht.

The two men were hanged at dawn in Rasht's central prison.

Their full names were not given. They were identified only as 45-year-old H.M. and 46-year-old S.P.

They were accused of drug smuggling.

On Wednesday, the mullahs' regime hanged a man in public in Ardestan (central Iran). The official state broadcaster announced his name as Saeed Zargari.

Only on Wednesday nine prisoners were hanged by the Iranian regime in prisons in Karaj (north-west of the capital Tehran) and in Sanandaj (western Iran). Eight of the prisoners, including a 22 and a 24-year-old, were collectively hanged in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj.

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."
