TEHRAN: Iran hanged a 21-year-old man on Sunday after convicting him of the rape of dozens of women in Shiraz, the judiciary said. The convict, identified only as Amin D, earned notoriety as the “Vaseline Man” in Iranian media for his greasing of his body in the pre-dawn attacks on women in their homes that sowed terror in the city of 1.5 million people.
