13 Jundallah Militants Executed

Iran executed 13 members of the militant group Jundallah this morning, but postponed carrying out the death penalty against Abdulhamid Rigi, the brother of the Jundallah leader. The 13 were hanged inside their prison in Zahedan, the restive provincial capital of the Iranian Baluchistan. They were convicted of “waging war against God,” being “corrupt on earth,” and killing innocent people.
