Iranian authorities have cut off the hand of a convicted thief after a court 
ruling in the western city of Malayer, the hardline Kayhan newspaper reported 
yesterday. "Following a court ruling, a thief's hand was amputated in Malayer," 
the report said, referring to the city located in Hamedan province. It did not 
specify if the verdict was carried out in public or in prison, or if a doctor 
was present during the amputation. 


Kayhan said the thief had previously been caught and sentenced several times, 
before the judge ruled for amputation.
