Tehran, Iran, Oct. 04 – A man was hanged in the restive city of Ahwaz, south-west Iran, state-media reported.

The man identified as 32-year-old Abbas A. (alias Za’bil) was hanged after he was convicted of armed robbery of livestock, the government-run news agency Fars reported on Monday.

Two other men identified as 45-year-old Hamid Kh. and 37-year-old Ali S. (alias Ka’bi) were also sentenced to death for taking part in the thefts.

The report said that their sentences would soon be carried out in public.

Ahwaz, the Arab-dominated provincial capital of oil-rich Khuzestan Province, has been the scene of unremitting anti-government protests since early 2005.
