Iran hangs 5 murder convicts, including a woman

Iran has hanged five people convicted of murder, including a young woman sentenced to death for slaying her newborn son.


The state-owned IRAN newspaper says all five, identified only by their first names, were hanged on Wednesday in Tehran's Evin prison. The paper's Thursday report identifies the 27-year-old woman as Soheila, charged with killing her five-day old son three years ago. (AP)
