Six people have been publicly executed, said a report on state radio, in the north-eastern city of Sabzeva, reported Reuters news agency.
What crimes those executed had been accused of, how they were killed or when, was not revealed, but according to the radio report, they were “wicked people”.
Convicted of murders, four others were publicly hanged in the southern province of Bushehr on Saturday, reported an Iranian newspaper.
Under Iranian Sharia law, murder, rape, adultery, drug trafficking, armed robbery and apostasy (the abandoning of religious faith) all carry the death penalty.
All public executions must have Iran’s judiciary chief Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi-Shahroudi’s approval, he ordered in January.
