Iran public execution displays brutal culture of violence


Graphic new video footage of a public hanging in Iran this week highlights the brutalisation of both the condemned and those who watch executions, Amnesty International said today.

The video provided to Amnesty International was shot on 19 July, and shows the execution by hanging of three men in Azadi Square in the city of Kermanshah. The men had been convicted of rape.

The three men are shown standing on top of buses as guards drape ropes fixed to a bridge overhead around their necks, before a crowd of onlookers including children.

The crimes for which the men were condemned and the execution is announced over a loudspeaker, then the buses are driven away.

  4. @AmnestyInternational
    From whom do you get paid? Whose interests do you represent? America also has the death penalty, where even innocent fall victim. Since you say nothing. They act according to the interests of their donors.

  5. Since you're right. From whom Amnesty International paid? Whose interests do the? America also has the death penalty, even where innocent were killed. As Amnesty International says nothing. They act according to the interests of their donors.
