6:02 am on 10 May 2010

Iran has hanged five members of anti-revolutionary groups, including a woman, who had been convicted of a series of bomb attacks.

The official IRNA news agency reports they were hanged inside Evin prison in Tehran on Sunday morning after a Supreme Court upheld their death sentences.

The hangings bring to at least 61 the number of people executed in Iran so far this year.
