Ten convicted murderers have been put to death in a single day in Iran, state media says.

The men were hanged on Wednesday morning at a jail in the capital, Tehran, the Iran newspaper reported. The BBC’s correspondent in Iran says the authorities have taken to carrying out mass executions because they see it as an extra deterrent. Iran is thought to have put to death more than 150 people last year. Rights groups say only China executes more. The latest executions took place at Evin prison in Tehran.
