报告中有关伊朗的部分说，伊朗的什叶派穆斯林政权继续以“主罪（enmity against God）”将人处决，包括去年12月在厄尔布尔士省处决4名囚犯以及去年9月在克尔曼省处决4名男子。
The Trump administration says it is horrified by reports of Iranian government persecution of religious minorities in the Islamist-ruled nation.
Speaking Tuesday at the U.S. State Department, U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback said the “horrific” reports relate to what he called Iran's persecution of people who are not part of its Shiite majority and who do not practice religion as the government directs.
He made the comments as he presented the State Department's 2017 International Religious Freedom Report.
The annual report's section on Iran said its Islamist rulers continued to execute people on charges of “moharebeh” or “enmity against God,” including four prisoners in Alborz province in December and four men in Kerman province in September.
The U.S. report said Tehran also continued to harass, interrogate and arrest Baha'is, Christians, Sunni Muslims and other religious minorities and to use anti-Semitic and anti-Baha'i rhetoric in official statements.
The report said members of religious minorities – especially Baha'is – continued to face societal discrimination and harassment, with employers experiencing social pressures not to hire Baha'is or to dismiss them from their jobs.
