Iran. Hang 'Em High: Thirty Executions In One Month

These buggers could give lessons to Texas, old Stalin will be rolling in his grave missing out on this lot.
Crane hire, must be a helluva growth industry in Iran.

Surge in public executions is a push to silence political activists.

Iran has hanged up to 30 people in the past month amid a clampdown prompted by alleged US-backed plots to topple the regime, The Observer can reveal.

Many executions have been carried out in public in an apparent bid to create a climate of intimidation while sending out uncompromising signals to the West.

Opposition sources say at least three of the dead were political activists, contradicting government insistence that it is targeting 'thugs' and dangerous criminals. The executions have coincided with a crackdown on student activists and academics accused of trying to foment a 'soft revolution' with US support. more
