TEHRAN – The stadium had been left abandoned, Fars Province Justice Department announced on Sunday in response to the International Federation of Association Football’s criticism why Iran recently used a soccer stadium to execute a hanging sentence.

“The place was only chosen for being set off by walls, for ensuring security rules, and to carry out the punishment of the murderer of a six-year-old child,” IRNA quoted the judicial department as having said.
