Iran executes journalist convicted of terrorism

leave a comment »

Yaghoob Mirnehad was executed Monday in the city of Zahedan after being convicted and sentenced to death earlier this year, said Iran’s judiciary spokesman, Ali Reza Jamshidi.

Iran accused Mirnehad of being involved in the armed Jundallah group, which operates along the Iranian-Pakistani border. Authorities said he set up a group to “cooperate” with Jundallah.

But a New York-based rights group, the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, said Iranian prosecutors held a secret trial and provided no evidence of Mirnehad’s links with Jundallah or involvement in any armed attacks.
