A death row prisoner in Iran is to be hanged  for a second time once he ‘becomes well again’ after he survived an initial  bungled execution.

The 37-year-old man named as Alireza M was  ‘put to death’ in the Islamic regime’s Bojnourd prison last Wednesday for drugs  offences.

After 12 minutes, he was certified as dead  and taken to the prison morgue.

But when his family went to collect his body  the following day, they noticed he was still breathing and rushed him to  hospital.

One family member told Iran’s state-run  media: ‘When we were told the death sentence had been carried out, we went to  collect his body to prepare for a memorial service.

‘But when we went to the coroner’s office we  found him alive again, which made his two daughters very happy.’

Once officials were told Alireza M had  survived, they put him under armed guard at the hospital to await a second  execution.

A judiciary official told the state media:  ‘The verdict was the death sentence, and it will be carried out once the man  gets well again.’

Iran has executed an estimated 560 people  this year – including around 200 that have been put to death since new  ‘moderate’ president Hassan Rouhani came to power in June.

Rouhani vowed to end the repression of the  previous regime, but human rights groups have said executions have actually  increased under his rule.

Iran has the highest rate of executions per  capita and puts to death more people annually than any nation except  China.

Many of the condemned are executed for theft,  drugs-related offences, not following the rules of Islam or criticising the  government.

They are often hanged publicly in town  centres or from bridges and cranes.

Maryam Namazie, of the campaign group Iran  Solidarity, said: ‘Rouhani was quoted saying he wanted to empty the prisons – it  seems the regime intends to do so via executions.’
