The state-run Fars news agency reported that 20 people were hanged this morning in Rajai-Shahr prison (Gohardasht) west of Tehran. In addition, the state-run Etemad daily reported today that two other prisoners were hanged in the city of Shiraz, southern Iran.
The hangings today follow 12 other executions which took place earlier this week in Tehran and Qom, south of the capital.
The new wave of hangings in Iran comes as millions of Iranians are taking part in a nationwide uprising which was sparked by the mullahs’ sham election on June 12.
The silence and the inattentiveness of the western media could be a cause of the massacres and the strict-assumptions of the executions.
Where is the outrage in the Muslim world?
