Human Rights Activists in Iran
The execution of a group of Afghan prisoners in Iran has been met with a serious reaction from members of the Afghanistan parliament.
According to this report, a number of Afghanistan MPs have said in parliament that in the past 3 days, the bodies of 45 executed Afghan prisoners in Iran were returned to Afghanistan via the Islam Qal'eh border region…Despite this, the Afghanistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs claims that only three Afghan prisoners were executed in Iran. The disclosure of the hanging of 45 Afghans has led Fada Hossein Maleki, the Afghan Foreign Affairs Minister, to summon the Iranian Ambassador in Kabul for explanations.
