In Iran, a participant in the protests was executed, found guilty by the court of “enmity against God”.

Mohsen Shekari was hanged this morning. He was accused of “rebellion”, blocking a main road in Tehran and using a machete to attack a member of the Basij resistance forces, writes the BBC.

On November 1, the court found Shekari guilty of fighting and drawing a weapon “with the intent to kill, cause terror and disrupt public order and security” and of “enmity against God.”

The activist said he was convicted after a “show trial without due process of law.”

So far, the judiciary has announced that 10 more people have been sentenced to death by Revolutionary Courts on charges of “enmity against God” or “corruption on Earth” in connection with the protests.
