Iran executed three men on Sunday for engaging in homosexual acts in the province of Ahwaz. The three men, not identified, were hanged at the Karoun prison along with three other men.

The prosecutor accused the men of sodomy and rape as it is easier to sell the case of execution to the court than sodomy, where it is almost unheard of.

The Sunni province of Ahwaz has the highest number of executions taken place in Iran.

Several years ago, Iranian president Ahmmadinejad said that homosexuals “don’t exist in Iran” in a speech he gave at Colombia university in the United States.
