An Iranian woman convicted of murder has been executed by hanging in a Tehran prison, according to the Etemad newspaper Thursday.
Zinat al-Sadat, a nurse, 34, was found guilty of strangling a 70-year-old man and his 11-year-old grandson with a rope four years ago. The woman was charged with caring for the man, and had strangled him to rob him.
The paper said she was executed on Wednesday.
It should be noted that executions of women are rare in the Islamic Republic. (Albawaba.com)
