Iranian authorities hide wrestler Afkari over death sentence: activist


Activist Mehdi Mahmoudian said Iranian authorities moved wrestler Navid Afkari, who was sentenced to death, to an unknown area, ignoring international calls to stop the execution.


Iranian media had previously reported that the wrestler was convicted of "premeditated murder" for stabbing an official in the Public Authority for Water in Shiraz (south) with a knife on August 2, 2018, and killing him.
