Despite global public outcry, Iran today Saturday, September 12th, 2020 executed Navid Afkari, a wrestler accused of stabbing a government worker to death.
The wrestler was executed at a prison in the southern city of Shiraz.
Navid murdered Hossein Torkman, a public sector worker during anti-government protests in August 2018 by stabbing him to death.
Trump wrote on Twitter:
“To the leaders of Iran, I would greatly appreciate if you would spare this young man’s life, and not execute him. Thank you!”
