The couple were identified by their first names, Raheleh (wife) and Babak (husband). The sentences were carried out after they were endorsed by the clerical regime's high court.

Total number of executions since the appointment of Ahmadinejad as mullahs' president last June has gone over 140. This is a figure based on media reports and does not take into account the secret executions.
