Tehran, Iran, Sep. 25 – Iranian authorities have hanged four men in the south-eastern province of Sistan-va-Baluchestan, according to a state-run daily.

The four men, identified as Shah Mohammad, Nader Reigi, Abdol-Ali Baluch, and Mohammad Shakib, were hanged on Saturday in Zahedan Prison, the hard-line daily Khorassan wrote on Sunday.

Iran’s judiciary in Zahedan also sentenced two women and one man to execution.

Zahedan is the provincial capital of Sistan-va-Baluchestan which has been a hotbed of anti-government activities.

In recent months, Iranian authorities have stepped up executions in the restive province in what many Baluchis believe is a response to a spate of attacks by dissidents on government and security officials.

In the north-eastern city of Mashad, the judiciary sentenced a man, identified only by his first name Hossein, to execution.
