Iran executes man despite international pressure

File picture shows a member of the Iranian judiciary staff tying ropes on September 29, 2002 prior to a hanging in TehranIran on Sunday hanged a man said to be affiliated to an exiled opposition group, state media reported, despite international pressure on the Islamic republic to halt the execution. According to the official IRNA news agency, Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani was convicted of “waging war against God” (moharebeh) by helping the People’s Mujahedeen Organisation of Iran (PMOI). The announcement of the hanging came just hours after Amnesty International said Khosravi Savadjani’s trial in 2010 had been unfair. Khosravi Savadjani was until then being held in solitary confinement at Evin Prison in the capital.
