Iran announced on Monday that it has executed a second prisoner who had been jailed during the current widespread protests against theocracy in the country. Majidreza Rahnavard was the guy put to death, according to a news publication, which is operated by the judiciary of the nation.

He was found guilty of murdering two officers of the security forces and injuring four others on November 17 in Mashhad. On Thursday, Iran executed the first prisoner apprehended during the protests.

Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the protests have grown into one of Iran’s most significant theocratic problems. Around a dozen people have so far been given death sentences for taking part in the demonstrations, according to activists, who fear that more people may follow suit soon.

Currently, Iran is witnessing nationwide protests following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in the custody of the so-called morality police over the improper wearing of the hijab.
