Amnesty International Condemns Wave of Executions

Amnesty International today expressed alarm at the new wave of executions in Iran. Since the beginning of 2007, Iran has executed 250 people.

On Wednesday alone, nine people were executed in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison, including a woman and a child offender. On the same day three others were executed in Shiraz.

Last week, two Kurdish rebels were hanged in Sanandaj.
