The Horror

Source: New Criminologist

18 March 2005:

"Amidst cries from tearful parents of "Shame on you, Bijeh," rocks and stones were tossed at the convicted murderer as he was flogged, shirtless and bound by his wrists to an iron pole. The man collapsed to his knees several times under the onslaught of the whip.

The 17-year-old brother of victim Rahim Younessi, managed to break through police security and charged at Bijeh with a knife, stabbing at him and wounding his back before police could restrain him.

When the lashing was concluded, Bijeh was unshackled from the pole and escorted to his death. A blue nylon rope-noose was placed around Bijeh's neck, reportedly by the mother of one of his victims, then attached to the hook of a crane." -- New Criminologist
