Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 20 /Trend S.Isayev, D. Khatinoglu/
Today two convicted criminals were hanged in Iran's capital of Tehran, ISNA reported.
Several months ago four people were arrested in Tehran due to burglary and assault using knives.
The abovementioned people robbed Tehran citizens, and once got caught on a video recorded by a security camera.
Iran's judiciary system's head Sadeqh Larijani said that using a knife is same as using a gun, and such action is assessed as "fighting with God", according to the Shariat rules.
Two other captured burglars were exiled, and will spent approximately 10 years in prison.
