Scathing UN report details Iran rights abuses

Published: 10.24.13, 00:11 / Israel News

A special UN rapporteur is scathing in a report detailing widespread human rights abuses in Iran, but he says recent signals from new President Hassan Rouhani have raised hopes for change.


Ahmed Shaheed's report Wednesday condemned a rise in the number of jailed journalists in Iran over the past decade and hundreds of executions for drug trafficking crimes. He expressed alarm about a law being considered that would allow a custodian to marry his adopted child. And he says minority religious groups are subjected to discrimination and are often arbitrarily arrested and tortured. (AP)
