A man in Iran is to be hanged for a second time after the first execution attempt was botched by officials.
The man, identified by Iranian state media as Alireza M, was found guilty of drug offences and ‘put to death’ in prison last Wednesday. After the hanging, which lasted around 12 minutes, the man was confirmed dead by a doctor and his death certificate was signed.
However, the following day staff working in the morgue found that Alireza was still breathing and rushed him to hospital.
