Tehran, Sep. 3 – A man by the name of Mohammad N. was hanged in public in the city of Arak, (central Iran) on Sunday, August 29.

Mohammad’s four young children were brought to the scene to watch the execution of their father.

As he was being taken to the gallows, the children pleaded for mercy for their father, who was accused of killing his wife. Reacting to the outcries of his children, the crowd also called for the victim to be spared.

Officials, however, went ahead with the hanging. As the victim was being lifted on the crane, his 15-year-old girl, Mahdiyeh, ran up to her father’s feet. While in tears, she attempted to force him on her own shoulders so that he would be able to breathe. Officials, however, prevented her from doing so and forced the children watch their father die.

The fate of Mohammad’s two daughters and two sons remains undetermined.

In the past week alone, seven people have been executed or sentenced to death, including an afghan boy, 16. On August 15, the Iranian regime executed Atefeh Rajabi, also 16, in the city of Neka, northern Iran.

International human rights organizations consistently censure Iran as the world’s leading violator of human rights.
