According to IHR sources, on the morning of Wednesday, January 15, two brothers were hanged at the central prison of Urmia city, West Azerbaijan province.
Darioush and Danesh Darvishpour were sentenced to death for murdering two men over a farmland dispute.
In 2019, most of the executions in Iran were carried out for murder charges.
There is a lack of a classification of murder by degree in Iran which results in issuing a death sentence for any kind of murder regardless of intensity and intent.
