Tehran, Oct. 6 – Three young men were flogged in public yesterday afternoon in Farah-Abad Square in the city of Isfahan.

No reason was given as to why the three men were flogged.

Security forces have recently launched a new clampdown on youth and women in Isfahan as part of a new campaign to stem the spate of anti-government protests in the city.

Last week violent clashes erupted between local residents and the security forces in Isfahan. Among the casualties was a 14 year-old schoolboy who reportedly was shot and seriously wounded.

On Monday a 33 year old man named Mehrzad Vajebal-Hoghough was hanged in public in one of Isfahan’s main squares as his wife and child were forced to look on.
