The cases of those accused of murder

 

The cases of forty-three people accused in the incident in Yazd, raiding a village overnight within twelve kilometres of Yazd about six months ago, and as a result of religious differences, beheading 15 of their opponents overnight, have been sent to Mr. Sedarat, the public prosecutor, for investigating the appeal procedure.
