IRAN SENTENCES THREE TO DEATH FOR MOSQUE BOMBING

November 29, 2008: Iran has sentenced three men convicted of a mosque bombing which left 14 people dead in the southern city of Shiraz in April to death, Kayhan newspaper reported.
Prosecutor Ali Akbar Heidari-Far said Mohsen Eslamian, 21, and Ali Asghar Pashtar, 20, both university students, and Rouzbeh Yahyazadeh, 32, would be hanged in Shiraz once the sentence was confirmed by the Supreme Court. "A revolutionary court in Tehran found the three main accused of the case to be 'mohareb' (enemies of God) and 'corrupt on the earth'," he said, without disclosing when the verdict was issued.
The three men were tried over the bombing of a packed mosque during evening prayers in Shiraz and also faced charges of "belonging to a terrorist group," cooperating with hostile armed groups, seeking to overthrow the Islamic system and planning to launch other attacks.
