Iran Hangs 2 Sunni Militants Convicted In Deadly Mosque Bombing

Iran's state TV says authorities have hanged two members of a Sunni militant group behind a mosque bombing last month that killed 25 people.

The report says the two men were hanged Saturday at a prison in the city of Zahedan, near Iran's southeastern border with Pakistan and Afghanistan. They were convicted of membership in the group Jundallah, or Soldiers of God, and of possessing weapons.

Iran accuses Jundallah of links with Al Qaeda. The group claimed responsibility for the May 28 mosque bombing. Three other men convicted of involvement in the attack were hanged last week.

Sunni militants have been fighting a low-level insurgency in southeastern Iran for years, complaining of persecution by Iran's overwhelmingly Shiite government.
