Three Balouchi men convicted of killing last year an Iranian prosecutor in a restive southeastern province near the Afghan border was hanged in public on Saturday, IRNA state news agency reported.
Public prosecutor Mousa Nouri was gunned down in the city of Zabol, in Sistan-Baluchistan province, along with his driver in November in a murder first claimed by a Sunni extremist group.
The three men convicted of his murder, Omir Piri, Alireza Dehmardeh and Iman Galavi "were sentenced to death for forming a terror team and killing... Nouri," IRNA said.
They were executed "in public this morning" in the same spot where Nouri was shot dead "after the Supreme Court upheld the verdict," the agency said.
