ImageTehran, Iran, Aug. 28 – Iranian authorities hanged five people, including a woman, in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison, state media reported on Thursday.

All five were hanged on Wednesday, the official daily "Iran" wrote.

The four men were identified as Amin, Majid, Najaf, and Vahid. They were accused of murder.

The woman was identified only by her first name Shabnam. She had been convicted of stabbing her husband to death over a divorce dispute.

Executions in Iran have sharply risen over the past two months. At least 63 people have been hanged in August, and 29 people were hanged simultaneously in Tehran on 25 July.

Over the past week, two young men, Behnam Zare and Reza Hejazi, were hanged for crimes they allegedly committed when they were 15 years old. Both were hanged without the knowledge of their lawyers or relatives.
