Tehran, Iran, Aug. 24 – Iranian authorities hanged a man in public in the south-eastern Iranian town of Khash, Sistan-va-Baluchistan Province, the official news agency IRNA reported on Thursday.

The man was identified as Amir-Hamzeh Eidouzehi.

He was charged with repeated armed robbery and rape, the report said.

Sistan-va-Baluchistan Province is home to Baluchis, a predominantly Sunni Muslim ethnic minority.

Iran has witnessed escalating unrest since 2006 in areas populated by Baluchis, who complain of discriminatory and repressive policies by the theocratic regime.

In recent months, Iranian authorities have stepped up executions in the restive province in what many Baluchis believe is a response to a spate of attacks by dissidents on government and security officials.
