Channel 4's sickening grant of air time to Iran's Imadinnerjacket is limned for the silly, self-important jack-assery it was... for on the 24th of December his government hanged 10 prisoners. Who knows if any of these convicts were political prisoners, or rape victims - they may have all been run of the mill criminals. However it seems that executing 10 less than 24 hours before Ahmadinejad spoke to a British audience smacks of intentional timing to me.
According to the website Iran Human Rights one man was hanged in one prison in northern Iran, while 9 were hanged in Teheran's Evin prison.
