I live even in the West, and then it's no wonder that I read newspapers like the Western countries have laid out. Today, early, I read something that I was really surprised. I have translated it in google, so the English is not good. But there are others who also have been read it ?

Early Tuesday to local authorities carry out a public execution by hanging in the town of Sirjan southeast of Iran.

But when the execution started, did several hundred demonstrators oppose the security guards and had taken down the two condemned the Iranians from the gallows.

- We have not had any similar situation before. As they are hung so people start throwing stones at security forces. Then get the upper hand and get them down from the gallows and they take with them, "said a spokesman for the Iran Human Rights, Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, to Nettavisen.

- What we have heard, it was heavy clashes. A car was set on fire, and there was almost war conditions, he adds.

Still alive

The first messages indicate that one of the men survived. This resulted in an extensive pat hunt for those involved, and on Tuesday afternoon when 15-time came the message that the two death row has been arrested and are still alive.

- Now, there have been reports that they have been arrested. Both were alive, and those who helped them were also arrested in a village outside Sirjan. And the execution will happen again in the afternoon, "says Amiry-Moghaddam.

Nettavisen have also confirmed this from the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which considers itself to be an Iranian exile government based in Paris.

- According to the state news agency ISNA, the two men were arrested along with four people who helped them. The execution will be carried out later today, and the others will be prosecuted and punished severely, "said a member of the NCRI, Shahin Gobadi, to Nettavisen.

Will get rid of a priest Board

Amiry-Moghaddam said Tuesday's event is an expression of the Iranian people will get rid of the Iranian government minister. The incident occurred in a small town where the priest board generally has been stronger than in the capital Tehran.

- In the smaller cities have more control regime. Therefore, this is sensational. We have not seen anything like this where people take control over the situation and get these two down. It suggests that the regime is weakening, "says Amiry-Moghaddam.

The two people who were executed by hanging is sentenced to death for armed robbery and possession of weapons. But on several previous occasions have people in Iran have been sentenced to death without receiving a fair trial.

- We can not verify what they actually did. The regime says they have been involved in an armed robbery, but it is the regime that comes with these allegations, "says Amiry-Moghaddam.

Rebellious mood

Since the disputed presidential election 12 June earlier this year, the situation in Iran has been very tense and marked by rebellious mood among large sections of the population. This is according Amiry-Moghaddam has meant that the regime has stepped up the terror against the people.

- It's true that in the last two weeks, the regime stepped up public executions. In January 2008 there was an order from supreme hold on to limit public executions because it was so much negative attention in the international media, "says Amiry-Moghaddam.

- But seven people have been executed by public hanging in the course of the last two weeks. This has a connection with the protests going on in Iran. One such event that today suggest that people have received NOK of the regime. The risk of the lot when they do something like that, "he says.

During 2009, there have been about 300 recorded executions in Iran. But the dark figures to be much higher this year than previous years, according to the Iran Human Rights.
