    Iran Debuts Finger cutting Machine for Thieves

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/...7550.html?utm_hp_ref=weird-news&ir=Weird News

    A series of graphic photos reportedly depicting the public amputation of a convicted man's fingers in Iran have been released to the public.

    The pictures show the amputation of a sweatsuit-clad prisoner's finger. The man was convicted of theft and adultery in the southwest city of Shiraz, according to state news agency ISNA.

    In the images, the blindfolded man is led to the machine by a trio of masked and hooded officials. As two officials hold his arms, the third inserts his hand into the machine.

    According to France24, the man had been sentenced to three years in prison and 99 lashes.

    Meanwhile, human rights groups have warned of an escalation in the number of public punishments in Iran. Last week, a pair of men convicted of mugging a man at knife point. The victim was uninjured, the Los Angeles Times reports, but the men were hanged -- without blindfolds -- from a pair of cranes in Tehran.

    Amnesty International released a similar video of one such hanging in 2011, where three men were hanged from an overhead bridge in front of a crowd of people.
