Iran executes three men over 2019 bombings

Iran hanged three men who were convicted of carrying out bombing attacks in 2019 in the restive southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan, the judiciary says.

The three men were sentenced to death after they were found guilty of bombing attacks targeting a police station and a patrol vehicle in Zahedan, the capital of Sistan-Baluchistan province, in 2019.

“The sentences against the perpetrators of bombings in Zahedan were carried out today,” the judiciary’s Mizan Online website quotes the province’s chief justice Ali Mostafavinia as saying.

Iran executes more people per year than any other nation except China, according to human rights groups including Amnesty International.

More than 600 people have been executed by Iran so far this year, already the highest figure in eight years, said the Norway-based Iran Human Rights (IHR) group in a November report.
