Executions → Hanging of two men and a woman in public in Iran
Two men and a woman were publicly hanged in northwestern Iran in July 15, 2007. The woman, identified only as Houriyeh, 29, and the two men were sentenced to death for the murders three months ago. "She had serious problems with her husband and hated his family. She hired Farhad and Reza to kill her brother-in-law and his parents," an unnamed judiciary official told the mass media. Houriyeh was wearing a head-to-toe black chador. The noose's knot on the woman's neck slipped to the front, that's why it took so long for her to die and causing more suffering. The case attracted great public interest and about 5000 people, including judiciary and police officials, gathered to watch the hangings.

Death by hanging is not considered to be a humane method of exterminating a healthy human being. It is a very brutal and cruel death.
Hanging still exists as a method of death penalty in Egypt, Iran, Japan, Jordan, Pakistan, Singapore, and in the USA (Washington State). The hanging method used in Iran is extremely brutal, because the death by suffocation came slow.

a conspiracy but that you should find
out the whole truth before you express
