Iran conducts first protest-related execution

BREAKING,

The person was convicted of injuring a security guard with a long knife, semi-official Tasnim news agency reports.

Iran says it has executed the first prisoner known to be convicted for an alleged crime stemming from ongoing nationwide protests.

The person was convicted of injuring a security guard with a long knife and closing off a Tehran street, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported on Thursday.

Tasnim added that the Supreme Court had rejected the appeal made by the defendant and justified the sentence by saying the defendant’s actions represented a “crime of waging war against God.”

Iran has been rocked by protests since the September 16 death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who died after being detained by the country’s morality police.
