He was arrested on November 17 while trying to flee the country, according to Mizan.
Iran has been rocked by weeks of protests sparked by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, an Iranian Kurdish woman who died after her arrest by the morality police in Tehran for an alleged breach of the country's strict hijab dress code for women.
The first execution linked to the protests look place on Thursday.
Mohsen Shekari, 23, was sentenced to death for blocking a street and wounding a security guard at the start of the protests.
The announcement of his execution sparked an international outcry.
Oh how he jan 6 comittee would love to do this
democrats taking copious notes
This is what the democrats want to do with us. If they could execute ua and get away with it, they would.
I saw a video of such an execution some time ago. Two men and a woman were tied to some kind of sturdy pole,a rope around each neck. A guy gave the signal and they were slowly lifted off the ground. The two guys were still from the very start but the woman thrashed about for about a minute before she,too,went still.
Barbaric doesn't even begin to describe it.
When Saudi Arabia had a dissident reporter whacked, the Left Media were all clutching their pearls...
But when Iran whacks a reporter... oh well...
