Free Republic reported:
Youcef Nadarkhani has been executed in Iran. He is the Christian pastor who has been imprisoned and found guilty by the courts in Iran of being a Christian. Now he’s been executed in spite of international appeals to spare his life. He was hanged today.
UPDATE: I made a few calls to Iranian activists and friends but so far no one can confirm this report.
UPDATE: There is no evidence that Nadarkhani was executed. Please continue your prayers for his release.
