Rights group denounces mass Iran hanging of 20 Sunnis

Human Rights Watch Monday denounced Iran’s hanging of 20 Sunni prisoners in one of its biggest mass executions in years as a “shameful low point in its human rights record”. Shiite-majority Iran last week said it had hanged 20 “terrorist” Sunni prisoners on Tuesday convicted of carrying out a string of attacks against civilians and religious leaders in the country’s western Kurdish region. “Iran’s mass execution of prisoners on August 2 at Rajai Shahr prison is a shameful low point in its human rights record,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at HRW.
