Tehran, Iran, Jun. 14 – Three men were hanged in the southern city of Kerman, the state-run news agency ISNA reported on Wednesday.

The sentences were carried out at dawn on Tuesday. The men were accused of kidnapping and rape.

Separately, ISNA reported that Iranian authorities hanged two men in the restive province of Sistan-va-Baluchistan, south-east Iran.

The pair were identified as Saeed A. and Nasser Sh.

The official news agency IRNA reported earlier that they were hanged in the city of Zahedan so that “divine punishment” could be administered and in order to create “lasting security” in the region, the provincial justice department announced in a statement.

They were accused of kidnapping and hostage taking.

Iran has witnessed escalating unrest in recent months in areas populated by Baluchis, who complain of discriminatory and repressive policies by the theocratic regime.

A Baluchi group opposed to the government of Iran calling itself Jondollah has claimed responsibility for a string of armed attacks on government officials including an ambush in March on a government convoy, which left twenty-two security and provincial officials dead and at least seven, including the governor of the city of Zahedan, critically wounded.
