Iran hangs 16 rebels 'in reprisal for border deaths’

Sixteen rebels have been hanged in Iran in retaliation for the deaths of at least 14 border guards in an ambush, say Iranian news agencies.
The rebels were “linked to groups hostile to the regime”, the attorney general of Sistan-Baluchistan province was quoted as saying.
They were hanged in prison in Zahedan, north-east of Saravan, where the border deaths took place overnight.


Wow. I am not sure what to think of this. The video said that the connection of the ones who were hanged to the rebels/assailants is not yet clear. I don’t feel that it is right to give the death penalty to a group of people for something someone else did. That just seems immoral to me.


Sounds like the religion of peace is hard at work in that prison.
