On December 12, one of the participants in the unrest in Iran was sentenced to death - he was found guilty of attacking and killing two members of the security forces.

According to ISNA, the incident happened in Mashhad, where a local resident of Majidreza Rahnavard mortally wounded law enforcers Hossein Zeynalzade and Daniyal Rezazade with a knife. Then, according to the investigation, he wounded four more people and fled. Rahnavard was detained when he tried to leave the country.

For the first time in Iran, a rioter was publicly executed on December 8. The 23-year-old Mohsen Shekari was executed, he was found guilty of "waging war against God." Investigators believe he stabbed a security agent and blocked a street in Tehran.
