The Iranian regime executed as many as 115 people in the two weeks to April 26, according to the opposition group the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

Another report speaks of 55 executions in a three week period in late March and April.

Amnesty International recently published the personal account of Hamed Ahmadi, an Iranian on death row.

Execution followed me and my family every second. My family was executed with me over and over. If they had not received news from me for one day, they would come to the prison immediately thinking that we are finished… We were left in this situation where every minute felt like we had a noose put around our neck.

Ahmadi’s family has not heard from him since he wrote these words.
