Iran hanged three Jundallah (God's soldiers) Sunni rebels in the country's southeastern Sistan- Balouchestan province on Sunday, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.
The Judiciary of Sistan-Balouchestan announced that the three Jundallah "terrorist" members, who were the cause of insecurity and evil deeds in the province, were hanged in the prison of Zahedan city Sunday morning, said the report.
The announcement said all the executed rebels "were engaged in terrorist acts" in the province over the past few months, according to ISNA.
On Friday, two Iranian Basij security members were killed and four others injured in a "terrorist" attack in the city of Chabahar in Sistan-Balouchestan, a Sunni-dominated province, the official IRNA news agency reported.
Jundallah, a Pakistan-based Sunni rebel group, has claimed responsibility for a number of deadly attacks in southeast Iran in the past few years.
In December 2010, 39 were killed and more than 50 others wounded in a suicide bomb attack by Jundallah in Chabahar when local Muslims gathered for a mourning ceremony.
