(Worthy News) – The Iranian government executed the first protester involved with the massive human rights demonstrations after Masa Amini was killed by police for not wearing a hijab, according to CNN.

Mohsen Shekari was hanged on Thursday after being sentenced to death in October for “injuring a paramilitary officer” during a protest, according to CNN. Iran has been hit with massive protests ever since the death of Amini, leading many Iranian women to take off their hijabs in protest of her death.

Shekari’s death was the first publicly announced state execution since the protesting began. Five protesters have been sentenced to death, including Shekari, according to the Los Angeles Times. [ Source: Daily Caller (Read More…) ]
