Iran prepares to execute two Ahwazi Arab brothers

Two Ahwazi Arab brothers convicted of "waging war against Allah" have been sentenced to death in relation to recent bombings in Ahwaz City. Their execution will come after a long period of incarceration and torture by the Iranian regime and a trial by a religious kangaroo court.

Mehdi Nawaser, 21, (left) and Abdolreza Nawaser, 31, (right) are facing execution by hanging, either in the prison where they are being held or in a public square. Mehdi was arrested in November before the Eid-al-Fitr anti-government demonstrations. Following his conviction he reportedly told the court that he refused to accept the ruling of a non-indigenous, non-Arab, discredited and undemocratic regime.

The Nawaser brothers cases are not thought to be related to the six sons of Ahwazi Arab tribal leader Hajj Salem Bawi, who are all facing execution for "waging war against Allah". Click here for further details on the Bawi brothers.
