3 more prisoners hanged in Iran

"An unprecedented killing spree"
3 prisoners were hanged in a notorious jail north-west of the Iranian capital on Wednesday.

The 3 men were hanged at dawn in Gohardasht (Rajai-Shahr) Prison in the city of Karaj.

They had been transferred to solitary confinement earlier in the week in preparation for their execution.

The mullahs' regime on Tuesday hanged 4 other men in northern and southern Iran.

The regime's judiciary in Qazvin Province, north-west of Tehran, said a prisoner only identified by his 1st name Aliyar was hanged on Tuesday.

Also on Tuesday the fundamentalist regime hanged 3 prisoners in Adel-Abad Prison in Shiraz, southern Iran.

They were identified as Ali Baz Khosravi, Mostafa Khosravi and Ali Baz Nourian.

On Sunday Mr. Aziz Maktabi was hanged in the same prison.

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 2 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."
