Death sentence confirmed for another Iranian protestor
Another death sentence was confirmed for an Iranian protestor who attended a anti-government demonstration last year, opposition websites reported Wednesday.
According to the reports, Tehran's appellate court upheld the sentence of the 20-year-old protestor, making him the 10th to be put on death row, DPA reported.
Two members of monarchist groups were already hanged last month for conspiring to topple Iran's Islamic establishment.
The 20-year-old protestor had attended demonstrations in December and was charged with plots against the establishment and having committed "Moharebeh" - or acting against God - which is punishable by death.
The websites reports have not yet been officially confirmed by the Iranian judiciary.
All the condemned suspects were arrested during rallies against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad after June's presidential election.
The opposition accuses the government of committing fraud to ensure his re-election.
