Twenty thousand spectators turned out for the event chanting "Allahu Akbar" while Kordiyeh received a flogging of 214 lashes from relatives of his victims and then tied to a yellow building crane and lifted, legs kicking, high into the air with a rope around his neck. Relatives of the victims had called for Kordiyeh to be stoned to death. They had also called for his hands to be cut off before execution because he had also been accused of theft. (12 August 1997)
