Mehdi Mahmoudian, a social activist, announced on his Twitter page, quoting the Afkari family, that Navid Afkari had been executed this morning.

Navid was an Iranian wrestler who had been sentenced to death by the Government of Iran for taking part in the 2018 Iranian protests. His brothers Vahid and Habib were sentenced to 54 and 27 years in prison in the same case.

He repeatedly told his family and media that all his confessions were under torture and none of them were true.
