IRAN (Graphic Photos): Man hanged in public in Darab
NCRI – The Iranian regime’s henchmen in the city of Darab (southern Iran) hanged a man in public on Wednesday.
The public hanging takes place a day after the United Secretary General has described the high rate of executions in Iran as ‘deeply troubling.’
The report from the office of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to the U.N. Human Rights Council cataloged U.N. concerns about rights violations in Iran.
The reports said: “The Secretary-General remains deeply troubled by the continuing large number of executions, including of political prisoners and juveniles”.
Also on Wednesday the clerical regime hanged six Sunni political prisoners in Gohardasht Prison in the city of Karaj.
The report by the Secretary General repeated a U.N. call for a death penalty moratorium and a ban on executing youths.
