Two Iranian brothers convicted of murder have been hanged publicly in the western province of Lorestan, the official news agency IRNA said on Friday.
The two, identified only as Reza and Saeed, were executed for killing two people during an armed clash with police in 2005 after the hanging of their brother in the provincial capital Khoramabad.
The hangings bring to at least 103 the number of people executed in Iran so far this year, according to a tally based on press and witness reports.
