"There were around four times as many public executions in 2011 than in 2010 [in Iran], and hundreds of people are believed to have been sentenced to death in the past year," Amnesty International said Monday in a new report.
Amnesty's Iran specialist Elise Auerbach said there were 50 public executions in 2011, compared to 14 in 2010.
At the same time, the total number of executions reported in Iranian state media increased from 253 to 600, although Auerbach stressed that "the true number was quite a bit higher."
