TEHRAN: Iran hanged nine people convicted of murder, including a woman, at Evin Prison in Tehran in the latest of a growing number of executions in the Islamic Republic, a newspaper reported on Thursday. The nine were hanged on Wednesday after being found guilty of various murders, the Tehran Emrouz newspaper reported. It said that some raped their victims before killing them. Separately, two Kurdish militants in Iran were hanged in the western city of Sanandaj for having killed a member of the Revolutionary Guards, the ISNA news agency reported. The new hangings bring to at least 221 the number of executions carried out by Iran this year. - AFP
