Five PJAK terrorists were hanged in Tegran, Iran

Iranian new agencies reported that five members of Kurdish rebel group, the Free Life Party of Kurdistan (PJAK) were hanged in Iran on Saturday, on charges of involvement in bomb attacks and links to terrorist groups.

According to IRNA news agency, the five, including the woman Shirin Alamhouli, were executed in Tehran’s Evin prison. Reportedly, the five were convicted of being “moharebs” or “enemies of God” — a crime punishable by death under Iran’s sharia-based Islamic law. They were also convicted of carrying out terrorist acts, including bombings of government centres and public properties in several Iranian cities.
