January 15, 2014: According to reliable sources in Iran 12 prisoners were hanged on January 14 in the Rajaishahr prison of Karaj (west of Tehran).

Some of the prisoners are identified as Reza Inanloo, Khalil Moradi, Mokhtar Babadi (all three from section 6 of Rajaishahr), and Fariborz Moradi and Ebad Mohamadi (both from section 2 of Rajaishahr) .
The prisoners were reportedly charged with murder.
None of these executions were announced by the official Iranian sources.
According to the state run Iranian news agency Fars, five prisoners were hanged on January 14 in the Adelabad prison of Shiraz. The prisoners who were not identified by name were convicted of possession and “armed” trafficking of 59 kilograms of opium, said the report.
On the same day Iranian state media reported about execution of a prisoner in the prison of Ardebil (northwestern Iran). Quoting the public relation office of the Judiciary in Ardebil, Tasnim news agency reported that the prisoner was convicted of selling 17 kilograms of heroin. The execution took place in the central prison of Ardebil. The prisoner was not identified by name.
On January 14 one man was hanged in public in Saveh (southwest of Tehran), reported the state run Iranian news agency ISNA.
