Two armed robbers hanged in public in Iran: press

Two convicted armed robbers were publicly hanged in the western city of Khorramabad Wednesday morning, IRNA reported, quoting the Persian daily Kayhan.

Mohammad Reza N. and Nureddin M. were sent to gallows at one of the city's squares after pleading guilty to charges of armed robbery, banditry, and committing 'immoral and indecent acts', the paper added.

The executions were carried out after the state supreme court upheld their convictions of death, Kayhan said.

Iran carries out death for armed robbery, blasphemy, serious drug offenses, rape and murder.
