PAKDASHT, Iran — A young man convicted of raping and murdering 16 boys was lashed 100 times, and then hanged Wednesday in front of a large, angry crowd who pelted him with stones and scuffled with police.

Mohammed Bijeh, 23, confessed in court to raping and murdering the children, between March and September 2004. Iranian media have said Bijeh burned the bodies of his victims, all boys between 8 and 15.

Bijeh was sentenced to one death sentence for each murder he confessed and 100 lashes of the whip for the rapes.

An accomplice, Ali Gholampour, was acquitted of involvement in the murders but was convicted of taking part in some of the kidnappings, to which he confessed. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison and 100 lashes.

Execution in town where murders occurred
Bijeh’s verdict was carried out in Pakdasht, a small, impoverished town about 19 miles southeast of Tehran, after being upheld by the Supreme Court. It was the same town where the murders took place.

Approximately 5,000 spectators — including women and children — gathered to watch the flogging and hanging. Riot police circled the area.

Some in the crowd threw stones at Bijeh as he was flogged, shirtless and hands tied to an iron pole. He fell to his knees three times as he received the lashes.


A relative of one of the victims broke police security and attacked Bijeh with a knife, wounding his back before police dragged him away.

After the flogging, a rope was put around Bijeh’s neck and attached to a hook on a crane. The crane’s arm jerked upward and Bijeh’s body dangled, drawing applause from the crowd.

Some people burst into tears, crying out the names of their injured children. Some shouted,“Shame on you, Bijeh!”

After about 20 minutes, the body was lowered and a doctor confirmed Bijeh was dead.


Scuffles after sentence carried out
Many in the crowd, some of them other family members of the victims, repeatedly tried to approach Bijeh’s body but were prevented by riot police. Scuffles continued for at least half an hour.

The case provoked national outrage in Iran. Sixteen police officers were reprimanded for dereliction of duty and the Interior Ministry criticized the police for failing to catch the suspects after the first crime.

Many of the people in Pakdasht supported the hanging.

“Public executions reduce the occurrence of offenses. Bijeh destroyed many families. He deserved more than death,” said resident Zahra Khaleghi.

But Dariush Mehraban said public hangings only promote violence.

“Many criminals have been hanged, but offenses have never reduced. It’s an ugly scene that a human being is hanged even if he has committed many crimes. Revenge is not the solution,” said Merhraban, who watched the hanging.

Convicts are hanged in public in Iran only if a court deems that their offenses deeply affected public sentiment.

Iranian courts are controlled by hard-liners. Iranian reformists say public executions hurt the country’s international image and reflect badly on Islam.

We should to the same to the AlQueda, but if all we can do is blow them up with drones, so be it.

You gotta give Islamic justice credit where credit is due. Sounds like this guy got what some like him in this country should get.

Credit...not so much. They just enjoy torturing, raping and killing people. If they can find a good reason for doing it, they like to celebrate with a public party.

Crowd got a little out of hand but hanging that sort of scum seems like good justice. We'd stage a few good old fashioned western necktie parties for his likes in this country we'd have a lot less of the kind of stuff he did happen here.

Somebody do what that guy did here in Kentucky and let the victim's relatives get hold of him and see if he don't get the same treatment that guy got.

Sounds like they had a good old fashioned Southern necktie party to me.

Nothing that they could do to a guy that rapes and kills 16 little boys is too bad for him.

Yep. But you'll never make a bunch of bleedin heart Yankee liberals see it that way. They're too worried about the "human rights" of the guy that raped and killed 16 boys to consider their human rights and their families right to some good old fashioned retribution on his azz.

No offense intended, I must say knowing what a lack of justice there is in Iran and how crooked the so-called justice system is there, I am not sure the accusations are true against this man. Who knows that he wasn't falsely accused, as happens so often there? The Christians, especially the pastors, who are unjustly accused and imprisoned there are proof of the crookedness in Iran. However, if the accused was guilty and deserved the death sentence, the cheering of the crowd disgusts me. Death is punishment enough without people cheering and enjoying the execution. I find such behaviour deplorable and have no respect for people who enjoy seeing others suffer.

True, Ralph. Cruelty in Iran is no news, for they are still as barbaric as they were in the Dark Ages. If this man was guilty of that many murders, he certainly deserved death but there is no excuse for the bloodlust of the crowd. In Iran, who knows who will be next? Innocent people are executed there on a regular basis,as they are in all Muslim countries.
