iranian-president-hassan-rouhaniIran has carried out a total of 40 executions since the beginning of 2014, with at least 33 carried out in the past week alone, Amnesty International said.

“The spike in the number of executions carried out so far this month in Iran is alarming. The Iranian authorities’ attempts to change their international image are meaningless if at the same time executions continue to increase,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Amnesty International’s Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa.

Public executions in Iran are usually carried out using cranes which lift the condemned person by a noose around the neck in front of a crowd of spectators.

  1. “Public executions in Iran are usually carried out using cranes which lift the condemned person by a noose around the neck in front of a crowd of spectators.”
    This gives individuals the opportunity to be stars of their reality shows.

  2. Without knowing what the people were executed for, the fact that Iran carried out executions doesn’t tell us anything beyond that. Were the executed murderers? political prisoners? Makes a difference.
