Iranian Regime Executes Wrestling Champion Navid Afkari Despite Global Outcry Including Plea from President Trump …Update: Regime Refuses to Turn Body Over to Family

The Iranian regime executed wrestling champion Navid Afkari on Saturday despite a global outcry including a public plea by President Trump.

His mother had called out for help on Friday. Navid and his brothers were arrested for protesting the regime.

President Trump posted a tweet calling on the regime to not execute the 27-year-old wrestler.

What sad news.

UPDATE: The regime is refusing to turn his body over to the family.
