TEHRAN - An Iranian man convicted of murder has been hanged in prison in the Caspian Sea town of Noshahr, the Jomhuri Eslami newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Quoted by the paper, a judiciary official in the port city said 23-year-old Majid Alghosi was executed for killing Siavosh Abassian in a family feud some four years ago. No further details were given.

So far this year Iran has executed at least 22 people, according to an AFP tally based on witness and press reports.

In 2004 at least 159 people were executed in the Islamic republic -- the highest rate in the world after China -- according to human rights watchdog Amnesty International.

Iran's capital offences include murder, rape, armed robbery, apostasy, blasphemy, serious drug trafficking, repeated sodomy, adultery or prostitution, treason and espionage.
