Tehran, Iran, Jan. 07 – A partially blind and deaf man was hanged in public in Tehran, a semi-official daily reported on Saturday.

Twenty two-year-old Behrouz Mehranpour was accused of killing two relatives when he was only 17, the hard-line daily Jomhouri Islami wrote.

Iran has executed at least eight individuals who were under the age of 18 when they allegedly committed their crimes in 2005, according to Amnesty International.

On 9 December, Philip Alston, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, described Tehran’s approach to dealing with child offenders as “particularly unacceptable”.

At least two other women have been sentenced to death by hanging over the past two weeks for crimes they allegedly committed when they were minors.
