The killing continues...

According to news reports from Iran, at least ten people were executed in the last 4 days alone.

On Sunday, September 4, six people were hanged in Karoun prison in the city of Ahvaz (southwest of Iran), three of them for sodomy. ISNA, the state-run news agency only identified the men with their initials and gave no information of their age. The three people convicted of sodomy were sentenced under article 108 and 110 of the Islamic penal code. 

On Tuesday, September 6, four men were hanged in the city of Kerman for alleged drug related offences.

Clearly the Islamic regime of Iran is continuing with its killing spree that started in December last year.

Last month, Catherine Ashton, EU High Representative in foreign affairs and security policy, condemned the ongoing executions in Iran and demanded and end to it. In a statement Ms Ashton said: “I am deeply concerned because of the increased number of executions in Iran. Based on data gathered from many sources during the first half of 2011, the rate of executions in Iran in proportion to its population, places Iran at the top list of users of executions.”

Let's keep the spotlight and pressure on the Islamic regime's killing machine.
