Iranian media says the Revolutionary Guard has detained two Sunni militants near the border with Pakistan, where clashes erupted earlier this month.

Earlier this month, the paramilitary Guard clashed with a nine-member cell of Jaish al-Adl, a Sunni militant group, in the same border region, killing four of them, including their leader.

And last month, Iran executed 20 members of Sunni militant groups.
