Tehran, Iran, Aug. 01 – Iranian authorities hanged seven people in public on Wednesday, official state media reported while showing images of the men hanging.

Five men were hanged in front of a crowd in the city of Mashad, north-east Iran. State television aired footage of the hanging. The men, all handcuffed, were hanged under a banner which read, “Implementation of justice equals improvement of security”.

Two other men were executed elsewhere in Mashad, state media reported.

All seven were accused of charges including rape, kidnapping and robbery.

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