Human Rights Council catalogued U.N. concerns about rights violations in Iran against women, religious minorities, journalists and activists.Iran was believed to have executed at least 500 people between January and November 2014 and possibly many more, the report said.The report said Iran was cooperating more on U.N. human rights treaties and had invited U.N. High Commissioner Zeid Ra'ad Al-Hussein to visit.
