Iran's chief judge has ordered that executions will no longer take place in public, the official IRNA news agency reported Wednesday.
Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, a moderate conservative cleric, also banned publishing pictures and broadcasting video footage of executions, the report said.
Executions can now only be carried out in public after special approval by the head of the judiciary, the report said.
