IRAN HUMAN RIGHTS (AUG 30 2016): Iran Human Rights (IHR) reported on the execution of 12 prisoners for drug offences in Karaj Central Prison on Saturday August 27. These executions haven't been announced by the authorities.

 A local source in Iran has provided Iran Human Rights with photos of the bodies of these prisoners (see below) after they were hanged to death. The photos were reportedly taken before the bodies of the prisoners were returned to their families. Sign of the rope is evident on the neck of the prisoners. 

Between 50 to 60% of the executions reported by IHR have not been announced by the authorities and are confirmed by its own sources in Iran.
