Tehran, Iran, Jul. 22 – Iranian authorities hanged 12 people in Tehran on Sunday, the state broadcasting corporation IRIB reported on its website.

Tehran’s chief prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi announced that the 12 unnamed individuals were hanged earlier in the day.

He said their charges included kidnapping and drug trafficking.

Four other individuals were hanged in Tehran last week on similar charges, he added.

Iranian authorities routinely execute dissidents on bogus charges such as armed robbery and drug smuggling.
