The news agency did not mention the exact place and time of execution.
Noushin had been interviewed by a state-media reporter the same day she was hanged when she was waiting in the courtyard for her execution.
The state media reported that Noushin was convicted of murdering a man, Soheil, who had promised to marry her, but took advantage of her, and subsequently brutalized, blackmailed and forced her into having sexual relations with his friends.
Noushin did this for a month before she decided to stop this situation by killing the man who was forcing her to do so.
