Iran: Three Executed as “Enemies of Allah”

ADN Kronos International reports that three Iranian men were executed on Monday after being convicted of being “enemies of Allah”. The men, Abdelaziz Esmailzehi, Abdoljamal Shahbakhsh and Ali Akbar Shahbakhsh, were put to death at a prison in Zahedan, Baluchistan, in southeast Iran. It was unknown what they had done in order to receive the designation of “enemies of Allah”. Thus far, Iran has executed at least 150 people in 2007, and 177 more in 2006.
