Iran hangs seven drug smugglers



Iran has hanged seven men for smuggling drugs, the official IRNA news agency reported.

The convicted men were executed inside a prison in the western province of Kermanshah.

"They had procured and distributed narcotics ranging from 5kg of heroin to 100kg of synthetic crack," said the prosecutor Mojtaba Maleki.

According to a law passed by parliament in December, procurement and distribution of more than 30g of drugs is punishable by death.

State media on Saturday reported the execution of eight other drug smugglers in the holy Shiite city of Qom.

How to increase your savings
  • Have a plan for your savings.
  • Decide on your emergency fund target and once that's achieved, assign your savings to another financial goal such as saving for a house or investing for retirement.
  • Decide on a financial goal that is important to you and put your savings to work for you.
  • It's important to have a purpose for your savings as it helps to keep you motivated to continue while also reducing the temptation to spend your savings.
