Iran Hangs Two Men for ‘Sexual Perversion’
Two Iranians found guilty of "sexual perversion" have been hanged at Qom to the south of the capital, Kayhan newspaper reported Monday.
The two men were hanged Sunday and Monday, the afternoon paper said, without giving details of the alleged perversion -- a term which in Iran can cover rape, adultery or homosexuality.
But the term is most commonly applied to rape.
The government daily Iran published alarming statistics on Sunday, saying on average one woman is raped and killed every six days in Tehran -- TEHRAN (AFP)
