TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A pro-government web site says Iran has executed two prison officials convicted of the 2009 torture deaths of three anti-government protesters.

Sunday’s report by the Khabarnameh Daneshjooyan web site says the executions were reported by Abdolhossein Rouhalamini, the father of one of the victims and a prominent conservative figure.

The torture deaths had sparked an outcry even among influential government supporters. The case drew some of the fiercest criticism against the government over its treatment of protesters in the turmoil following 2009’s disputed presidential election.

The two prison officials were convicted in June.

Calls to Roulhalamini and officials were not returned Sunday.
