Washington had warned Tehran in direction of ending up the sentences.

The execution of these males  after what have been broadly thought of sham trials  will be an affront to human rights and first dignity in Iran and all over the place, State Division deputy spokesman Vedant Patel said at a data briefing Thursday. Its clear from this episode that the Iranian regime has found nothing from the protests.
