Iran hanged two convicted murderers in a prison in the central city of Isfahan on Sunday, the website of Iranian state broadcasting reported. The report did not identify the convicts but said that they had been found guilty of murdering a couple in the town of Damaneh. The latest hangings bring to at least 123 the number of executions carried out in Iran so far this year, according to a foreign news agency count. Amnesty International reported that in 2007 Iran applied the death penalty more often than any other country apart from China, executing 317 people during the year.
