Tehran, Feb. 15 – A 15-year-old schoolboy has been sentenced to death accused of murder, government-run websites announced on Wednesday.

The teenage boy, only identified by his first name Mohammad, was originally sentenced by the Supreme Court to serve five years behind bars and pay blood-money for allegedly stabbing to death a friend after a scuffle.

An appellate court, however, raised his sentence to death by hanging.
