NCRI – A young man was hanged in public this morning near the capital for alleged killing of a clerical regime’s judge.

The man, identified as Amir Hossein Rouhafza, 20, was hanged from a crane in front of an angry crowd in the town of Qarchak, 40 kilometres southeast Tehran.

The number of executions has risen rapidly in recent months causing concern among human rights organizations and activists.

Hundreds of Iranians and supporters of Iranian Resistance have staged demonstrations across Europe, the United States and Australia to condemn growing violations of human rights in Iran. Demonstrators also called on the international community and governments to intervene and stop executions in Iran.

In an international appeal last month, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, called for referral of the regime’s human rights dossier to the UN Security Council for adoption of binding measures to stop arbitrary executions in Iran.
