An Iranian judicial official says authorities have hanged 11
members of a Sunni militant group that claimed responsibility for a devastating
suicide bombing last week during a Shi'ite mourning procession.
Ebrahim Hamidi, head of the Sistan-Baluchestan provincial justice department, says the 11 were members of Jundallah and had been involved in terrorist attacks, clashes with police, and the killing of innocent people.
Jundallah is a shadowy Sunni militant group that claimed
responsibility for a December 15 suicide bombing in Chabahar that killed 39
people and injured dozens.
The group has carried out sporadic attacks to fight what it says is discrimination against minority Sunni Muslims in predominantly Shi'ite Iran.
