Tehran, Iran, Feb. 26 – Iranian authorities have amputated the fingers of a man in his forties in public for stealing money, the official news agency IRNA said on Monday.

The 46-year-old man, identified only as F. Hosseini, had four of the fingers on his right hand amputated in public in the western city of Kermanshah, according to Daniel Hoderji, an official in the judiciary.

Hosseini was accused of mainly robbing safes.

Iran’s Islamic penal system regularly practices centuries-old sentences for petty crimes, such as amputation of limbs, eye gouging, stoning to death, and throwing prisoners off a cliff in a sac.
