Tehran, Iran, Aug. 16 – Three men were hanged in south-east Iran, according to a semi-official daily.

The men were identified as Abdol-Malik Faghirdadi, Shirdel Shahiki-Rad, and Hamid-Reza Thaber, the hard-line daily Jomhouri Islami reported on Tuesday.

The report said that the hangings took place in public in the city of Zabol and in a prison in the city of Zahedan. It did not say where each of the men had been hanged.

The men were convicted of drug smuggling and “trouble-making”.

Authorities routinely refer to anti-government activists as trouble-makers.
