Iran targets the West in a tit-for-tat response to heavy sanctions, executing a British-Iranian citizen and sending a Belgian aid worker to prison. Critics accuse Iran of using prisoners and death threats as bargaining chips with the West.
Meanwhile, the United Nations accused Iran of “weaponizing” its death penalty following last week’s hangings. The murders may have paused the protest movement, but Heart4Iran’s Program Response Manager, Nazanin Baghestani, says unrest won’t stop. There’s too much anger.
