Tehran, Iran, Dec. 30 – A man was hanged in public in the south-eastern town of Saravan, a semi-official daily reported on Saturday.

The man, identified only by his first name Amanollah, was accused of armed robbery, the hard-line Jomhouri Islami wrote.

Amanollah was hanged in public on Thursday.

He was sentenced to death by a court in the nearby city of Zahedan, the provincial capital of Sistan-va-Baluchistan Province.

On Monday, Iranian authorities executed two men identified as Youssef H. and Pordel B. in Zahedan.

Sistan-va-Baluchistan has been a hotbed of anti-government activities since 2005.

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.
