Tehran, Sep. 17 - The head of the public relations office of prisons in Hamedan province (western Iran) announced today that the local Department of Justice had amputated the fingers of a burglar.

The man had allegedly stolen from 15 different stores. The sentence was carried out near the central Hamedan prison in the presence of Justice Department officials, the security personnel and the Revolutionary Guards.

The Iranian regime routinely carries out a variety of inhuman sentences, including limb amputations, eye gouging and stoning to death.

Four men were reportedly stoned to death on charges of adultery last year.
