Five Kidnappers, Rapists Executed in Northern Iran
Five men found guilty of kidnapping and raping women in the northern Iranian city of Gorgan were executed on Friday, an official said.
The five were members of a gang that created an atmosphere of fear in the Nahar-Khoran region, to the extent that the victims did not dare to complain about the abuses, the official told the Iranian news agency, IRNA.
Nahar-Khoran is a vast area of forests near Gorgan, which thousands of Iranians visit daily for recreation.
Iran has been hanging those found guilty of rape or murder since the 1979 Islamic revolution – Albawaba.com
