Iranian Security Forces Desecrate Executed Protester's Grave on His Birthday

On the birthday of Majid Kazemi, who was executed last month for allegedly drawing a gun during a protest in Isfahan, Iranian security forces set fire to his grave. Kazemi's family had received a warning from security forces not to visit his grave on his birthday.

Mohammad Hashemi, a cousin of Kazemi based in Australia, tweeted an image of Kazemi's torched grave. He said security forces had gone to the cemetery in the middle of the night and set fire to the grave.

Kazemi, Saleh Mirhashemi, and Saeed Yaghoubi were arrested in November and received death sentences in January. They were convicted of "war against God" for allegedly drawing a gun during a protest in Isfahan, resulting in the deaths of three members of the security forces.

The execution of Kazemi and his two co-accused has been condemned by human rights groups. Amnesty International has called the executions "a flagrant violation of the right to life."
