Iran publicly hanged on Tuesday two men convicted of murder in separate cities, local media reported.
One of the men hanged in the capital Tehran had confessed to stabbing a fellow student to death in broad daylight in early July after she spurned him, the state television website reported.
The 25-year-old, who was identified only by his first name Kousha, was sent to the gallows near the scene of the crime, a bridge in northwest Tehran, it added.
Also on Tuesday, another man convicted of murdering four members of a family a year ago was hanged in public in the southern town of Dashtestan, the Fars news agency reported.
The latest hangings bring to 194 the number of executions reported in Iran so far this year, according to an AFP tally based on media and official reports.
