NCRI - The Iranian regime's state-run news outlets published the images of the public hanging of a man on Monday in the city of Mianeh, in northwestern Iran.

The prisoner was identified as Asgar Azizi. The reports did not specify the time of his arrest but said he had been arrested on drug related charges and was later sentenced to death.

One report said the man had been imprisoned since 2008.

The images showed the man being taken to the make shift gallows built using a crane.
