Iran hangs murderer of friday prayer imam

Iran on Wednesday hanged in public a man convicted of murdering the leader of main weekly prayers in the southern city of Kazeroun, state ONA reports citing IRNA.

Hamid Reza Derakhshandeh was executed at the scene where he killed the cleric on May 29, said chief justice of Fars province, Kazem Mousavi.

Note that Mohammad Khorsand suffered fatal injuries when attacked with a "cold weapon" while returning from a ceremony during Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting.
