Dear Zambia,

BBC
Iran has executed a currency trader known as the "Sultan of Coins" for amassing some two tonnes of gold coins.
Vahid Mazloumin and another member of his currency trading network received the death penalty for "spreading corruption on earth".

According to the Iranian Students' News Agency, Mr Mazloumin and associates had hoarded the coins to manipulate prices.
Rights group Amnesty International described the executions as "horrific" and a violation of international law.

"Use of the death penalty is appalling under any circumstances," Amnesty said in a statement on Wednesday, adding that under international law "the death penalty is absolutely forbidden for non-lethal crimes, such as financial corruption".
