-- 17:37, 25 July 2005 (UTC)See the Washington Times source article. It appears from the source article that the two were hanged for rape of a 13-year-old boy. Granted, this might have just been a stated reason, but the story currently does not present all the facts as reported by other media. -- IlyaHaykinson 02:12, July 23, 2005 (UTC)Reply

Changed title of story to more accurately reflect content. --Wolfrider 03:25, 23 July 2005 (UTC)Reply

I have changed it again, note the Arabic original story says nothing or rape. The latter reports by the Iranian government of the so-called rape came after international furor. Lalala 03:34, 23 July 2005 (UTC)Reply
I should have read more closely. Thanks. --Wolfrider 03:35, 23 July 2005 (UTC)Reply

It seems the conviction was for homosexual acts, not rape, so the rape thing really was put out there after the fact.

that includes the allegedly right
wing bias Fox News Channel and The Times

Took out hanging picture?


The picture of the boy being hanged was better than the map of Iran. It is a picture from the story as opposed to a map that I can find anywhere.

It was deleted because it was a copyvio, we can not use photos from other news organizations . --Cspurrier 14:28, 23 July 2005 (UTC)Reply
