Tehran, Iran, May 14 – Iranian authorities have hanged 15 people in the north-eastern city of Mashad, state-run media reported on Monday.

The men were hanged over the past week, the hard-line daily Qods wrote.

Gholam-Hossein Esmaeili, Mashad’s Chief Prosecutor, said that the judiciary was acting “decisively” against those creating instability.

He added that the 15 individuals had been hanged for drug trafficking.

Iranian authorities routinely execute dissidents on bogus charges such as armed robbery and drug smuggling.

Mashad was the scene of a major anti-government protest last week, with local residents attacking agents of Iran’s State Security Forces (SSF) who were attempting to detain a woman for “mal-veiling”. During the clashes, the SSF fired teargas and attacked angry protestors with batons. A nationwide clampdown mainly targeting women for “mal-veiling” began in mid-April.
