More than Two People Per Day Executed in Iran

Thursday, June 5, 2014 | Worthy News / World News


(Free Beacon / Worthy News)-- Executions in Iran continue to soar to record-breaking levels in 2014, as more than two people are being killed every day and some 320 executions have taken place in the first five months of 2014 alone, according to human rights observers.

Iran is on track to eclipse the number of executions committed in 2013, when they killed around 687 prisoners, including political dissidents and others charged with minor crimes, according to the group Iran Human Rights (IHR), which tracks human rights atrocities in Iran.

Iran hanged a prominent political dissident early Sunday for refusing to renounce his ties to an Iranian opposition group, and hanged another inmate earlier this week, bringing the average to "more than two executions everyday," according to an IHR tally of both publicized and secret executions in Iran.
