Tehran, May 12 – Three Iranian men were hanged in public yesterday in the southern town of Susangerd, in the Iranian province of Khuzestan, according to the state-run news agency.

The young men, who were identified as Nasser Ch., Aref S. and Ali S., were accused of abducting and murdering a six-year-old boy in February 2002.

A week earlier five men were hanged in the Iranian capital and in the city of Ahwaz, also in Khuzestan.

Reza H. was hanged in public in Ahwaz in the early hours of the day. The four other men identified as Hatam Gorgi, Ali-Reza Hojabri, Mohammad Faranaki, and Ali-Reza Akbarian were all executed in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison.
