Pompeo condemns Iran’s ‘vicious’ execution of wrestler

WASHINGTON — US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo condemns the “vicious” execution of a wrestler in Iran, joining a chorus of shock and censure — including from the International Olympic Committee — against the killing.

“The Iranian regime’s execution of Navid Afkari is a vicious and cruel act. We condemn it in the strongest terms. It is an outrageous assault on human dignity, even by the despicable standards of this regime. The voices of the Iranian people will not be silenced,” Pompeo tweets.
