Iran: strange September 11th 2012

On September 10 was in Shahroud a man hanged in public.
The man, H. A was convicted for rape and sodomy.
On September 11th is in Tehran Sadegh Moradi, 27,also known by the media as "Black Scorpion", hanged in public.
Hij was convicted for the rape of 4 women and kidnapping and robbery of 14 other women.
Initially he had been exonerated from the rape charges and sentenced to 10 years in prison but the decision was met with protests and the case was sent to the Supreme Court where the death sentence was reinstated. His family told that they had not been allowed to speak with him for a month  and despite waiting outside Evin Prison, they were not permitted to meet with him for the last time.
Before being executed Sadeghi said he was innocent.

In a speech in the village Gonbad-e Kavus at Caspian Sea to mark its registration as a Unesco World Heritage site, president Ahmadinejad accused the West of purposely destroying the rainclouds headed for Iran.
He said that Iran is moving towards drought, which is partly unintentional due to industry and partly intentional, as a result of the enemy destroying the clouds moving towards the country and this is a war that Iran is going to overcome.
Although Iran is recognized as having one of the world's driest climates, the comments were the latest in a series of bizarre allegations of a Western conspiracy to turn the shortage into a major crisis.
