Tehran, Jul. 22 – Authorities on Thursday amputated the hands of five men accused of stealing in the city of Hamedan, western Iran.

The amputations took place in a prison in the presence of local judiciary officials. The semi-official news agency ILNA quoted local judiciary official Akbar Biglari as saying that the average age of the five men was over 25.

Authorities amputated the hand of another man in the city of Malayer in Hamedan Province on 2 July.

Iran’s Islamic penal system regularly practices centuries-old sentences for petty crimes, such as amputation of limbs, eye gouging, stoning to death, and throwing prisoners off a cliff in a sac.

International human rights bodies have repeatedly called on the regime to halt inhumane and degrading punishments.
