Hanged: Mohammad Reza Ali-Zamani and Arash Rahmanipour

From the BBC: Iran ‘executes two over post-election unrest’
“Following the riots and anti-revolutionary measures in recent months, particularly on the day of Ashura, a Tehran Islamic Revolutionary Court branch considered the cases of a number of accused and handed down death sentences against 11 of those,” Isna said, quoting a statement from the Tehran prosecutor's office.

“The sentences against two of these people... were carried out today at dawn and the accused were hanged,” the semi-official agency said, adding that the sentences had been confirmed by an appeal court.

It named them as Mohammad Reza Ali-Zamani and Arash Rahmanipour.
