Four men who gang-r*ped woman in front of her tied-up husband hanged in Iran

Four men who gang-r.*.p.e.d a woman mountain climber in front of her husband have been executed, it has been reported.

The vile attack was said to have taken place while climbing in Khorasan Razavi province, in north-eastern Iran.

Iran International TV reports that the men are believed to have tied the man's hands and feet together before attacking his wife in front of him.

According to the Justice Organization for the area four r*pists were later arrested by police following an extensive investigation.

The gang of men were identified by the city of Fariman’s police force and charged with the kidnapping and rape of a woman and with threats of violence towards a man.

The Criminal Court of Khorasan Razavi sent the case to the Supreme Court where the four men were sentenced to death by hanging.

The execution was carried out in Mashhad Central Prison on Monday morning. 

They were named by the prosecutor’s office as Ruhollah Javidi Rad, Mohammad Sayadi Baghansgani, Mohammad Hosseini and Mohammad Watandoost.

While the men were sentenced in this case in Iran rape victims are said to often face counter charges of adultery, indecency or immoral behaviour once they report a s.e.xual assault to the police.
