Iran: Fear of imminent execution/ torture

, Index number: MDE 13/034/2007

Seven men, [Sa'id Qanbar Zahi, aged 17; Javad Naroui; Ma'soud Nosrat Zahi; Houshang Shahnavazi; Yahya Sohrab Zahi; Ali Reza Brahoui; Abdalbek Kahra Zahi (also known as Abdalmalek)] and members of Iran's Baluchi minority are at risk of imminent execution. Amnesty International fears that at least five of the group may have been tortured into "confessing" to involvement in a number of violent crimes carried out in the town of Tasuki, in Sistan-Baluchistan province, southern Iran, in March 2006.
