Five people hanged in Iran prison

Tehran, May 09 - Islamic republic of Iran hanged four men and a woman in Evin prison in Tehran early morning today.

The Tehran public prosecutor's office on a statement identified the five as Farzad kamangar, Ali Heidarian, Farhad Vakili, Shirin Alam Holi and Mehdi Eslamian.

They were Iranian Kurdish ethnic and all accused of terrorism including bombing government and non-government institutions in different cities. Public prosecutor's office failed to show evidence that these people involved in terrorism or bombing attacks.

Iranian authorities routinely have been executing dissidents on bogus charges such as armed robbery, terrorism and drug trafficking.

Farzad Kamangar was a teacher in rural areas and the campaign to save him still is here on this site.

Update: Farzad Kamangar's family and lawyer were not informed of execution.
