TEHRAN – An Afghan assailant who had martyred two scholars in a stabbing attack in Iran’s northeastern city of Mashhad in April was hanged on Monday.
Abdullatif Muradi, 21, had stabbed three scholars at the shrine of the eighth Shia Imam in Mashhad on April 5, martyring two and injuring one of them. He had reportedly entered Iran illegally from Pakistan a year ago before residing in Mashhad. A court in the holy city had found him guilty, following which he was hanged in Vakilabad prison of Mashhad early Monday on charge of taking up arms against society.
