Iran Human Rights (JULY 4 2017): Two prisoners were hanged in public on rape charges.

The hangings were carried out in the city of Torbat-e Heydarieh (Razavi Khorasan province) on the sidelines of a sports complex.

According to a report by the state-run news agency, Jam News, the public executions were carried out on Tuesday July 4 on Abshar Street.
