Iran's Revolutionary Court says it has convicted three men for involvement in an explosion in a mosque that killed 14 people in April and sentenced them to death.

The court says in a statement that the three, Mohsen Eslamian, Ali Asghar Pashtar and Roozbeh Yahyazadeh, have been found to be "corrupt on earth" and sentenced to be hanged.

A copy of the statement was made available to the AP Saturday.

Defense lawyers have protested the ruling and the case is now at the Supreme Court for a final decision.

The court says the three are also charged with membership in a monarchist group seeking to overthrow the government.

The April 12 bombing in a mosque in Shiraz, southern Iran, killed 14 people and injured more than 200.
