Stop Child Executions Campaign was informed today that three more Iranian children are facing imminent executions. The execution verdict of all three were approved by superior court of Islamic regime in Iran and their files were sent to the head of judiciary, Ayatollah Shahrudi for final approval.
AMIR AMROLAHI who is now 18 years old is sentenced to death for the murder of another boy during a fight at the age of 16. Other two boys RAHIM AHMADI and MOHAMMADREZA HADDADI are also sentenced to death for other alleged crimes at the age of 16. (More details and urgent action reports to follow.)
Iran has broken the world records in 2007 with at least 297 recorded executions comparing to 177 in 2006. One man was stonned to death in Iran in 2007. Nobel peace prize winner Shirin Ebadi's human rights group on Wednesday protesting against the amputation of hands and feet of 5 men as a punishment last week, warned: "Unfortunately, the violation of human rights in Iran has not only been expanded in some fields, it has also found new dimensions," Last week two men were also sentenced to death by being dropped from height.

In 2007 at least 7 were reported to have been executed : 6 in Iran and 1 in Saudi Arabia. Three are known to have been saved from execution: 2 in Iran and 1 in Yemen.
