Executions → Execution of Gay Teens in Iran (July 19, 2005)

Two gay teenagers Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni were hanged in public in the Iranian city of Mashhad on July 19, 2005. Photos of the execution released by Iranian Students News Agency showed the two teens crying in the truck driving them to the gallows in Edalat (Justice) Square.

The case had considerable global resonance. Iran has been under fire by international human rights groups for executing those teenagers for almost one year. But there were some interesting facts regarding this case. The first one is that Ayaz and Mahmoud were caught by Iranian Police during having anal sex with a 13 year old boy. Because the age of consent for men in Iran is 15, this 13 year old boy was automatically then classified raped by Mahmoud and Ayaz. So, in the eyes of the Iranian law, that boy was raped! The second one was those teens were aged 18 and 19 (death penalty is forbidden in Iran for those under the age of 18 at the time of their crime; almost no one wrote about this in mass media). The father of the 13 year old boy also officially claimed his son was raped.

There is Nothing wrong with being gay, wether or not they did rape they boy is besides the point. and capital punishment is bullshit EVERYONE has the right to live no matter what, even if they are complete sickos. some people deserver a servere punishment, but when does killing someone make anything right? the executionier should be accused of murder as well and all those who support it. Think about it there are so many kids having Under age sex its like a think kids think they must do, most likely this boy who was so what "Raped" was friends with these Teenagers and the all just wanted to have a good time together. i live in the Uk and killing people will only make all the shit in the world worse.

Have some respect arseholes

Bernard may hope that America stands tall compared to Iran, when its relates to justice, however, America locks up teenagers for life?

The abrasive and cruel comments written below, are not the work of the many, but of a singular mind, one intent on exposing the dark side of the human equation, fear; hear the fear of same sex orientation, the one that would seem to justify the brutal beatings and murder of two children. When and where, will people learn to stop the violence? When will organized religion stop encouraging the mistreatment and murder of people? My heart bleeds before this type of injustice, and I pray with bended head for Mahmoud and Ayaz, teenage martyrs to religious fanatism.

After the reading the comments, it's
seems that USA is an even worse country
than Iran... hey dudes, do you remember
the "freedom" and "illustration" and all
those values that founded that bitching

Was the boy really raped or he actually
wanted to have sex? Were them hanged
because they raped the child or because
they were gays?

If I was corn holed, I would like the culprits to be beaten and then hanged,
and if I corn holed someone, I should expect to be beaten and then hanged. It was most fair as a punishment. I wish I could have seen them get beaten and then hanged. Bully for Iran.

They must have felt it was a "queer" day to be taken out and given a sound beating,and then to be publicly hanged. A good end to two apprentise terrorist.

Good for the gear boxes, to bad they were not put on horses, like in the old American west, and felt their support give way, as the rope tightened around their gay necks. Good hangings.
