'Vampire' flogged, stabbed and hanged in public

March 17, 2005

PAKDASHT, Iran: An Iranian serial killer convicted of kidnapping and murdering 21 people, most of them little boys, was publicly flogged and hanged south of Tehran on Wednesday before thousands of spectators.

Mohammad Bijeh, branded "the vampire of the desert" in the Iranian press, was lashed 100 times, stabbed in the back by a furious brother of one victim before a blue nylon rope was placed around his neck by the mother of another murdered child.

The 22-year-old killer, who remained calm and kept silent throughout the punishment, was then hauled into the air by a crane to cries from the crowd of "make him twist".

"Dance and think of what you did to our kids," shouted one father, as Bijeh was throttled to death over several minutes. Hanging by a crane does not involve the neck being broken.

Few tears were shed during the hanging. Instead, the crowd vented its rage.

"Hit him harder, the bastard," yelled Ali Khosravi, whose 10-year-old son Kayvan was killed and then burned by Bijeh.

Bijeh also reportedly ate the leg of his one of his victims just to see what it tasted like.


Before being hanged, Bijeh was stripped of his shirt and stood against a post. His hands were tied around the post and he was lashed by several different plain-clothes officials.

The huge crowd, kept back by barbed wire and around 100 members of the security forces, chanted "harder, harder!".


More anti-vampire propaganda from the Liberal Media.
