DUBAI, United Arab Emirates  — Rights activists said Monday that Iran's security forces have buried in secret a Dutch-Iranian woman who was hanged last month on drug charges.

The group Human Rights Activists said the body of 45-year-old Zahra Bahrami was buried in the north-central city of Semnan on Sunday.

The group's report claims Bahrami's daughter was told that the burial was done secretly to avoid the presence of Dutch diplomats or others.

The Dutch government froze official contacts with Iran last week to protest the execution.
