TEHRAN – A 26-year-old Iranian man, convicted of murdering a woman, was hanged in prison in the northern city of Semnan, the conservative daily Jomhuri Eslami reported on Tuesday.

At least 95 people have been executed in Iran this year, according to reports in Iran’s main newspapers and other media monitored by AFP.

Murder, armed robbery, rape, apostasy and serious drug trafficking are all punishable by death in Iran.
