German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock summons Iran’s ambassador to Berlin for the second time in a week over a rash of executions by Tehran, her spokesman says.

The spokesman, Christofer Burger, confirms the move when asked about reports the envoy had been summoned “over massive human rights violations and a wave of executions.”
