Tehran, May 02 – A young man was hanged in public in the northeastern Iranian town of Bojnourd for “acting against the state”, according to the state-run daily Iran.

Hadi Safdari was accused of creating public disorder and acting against the state.

Iran’s authorities have recently stepped up executions and death sentences for political prisoners, despite international condemnation.

On Monday morning another man, only identified as Yaqoub R., was executed in Karoon Prison in the southern Iranian city of Ahwaz, which has been the scene of mass social unrest and clashes between anti-government protesters and State Security Forces. He was accused of murder.

Separately two other men were sentenced to death by a Tehran court, accused of murder. A 21-year-old man was sentenced to execution while another young man was sentenced to five times execution in public.
