TEHERAN, Iran — Iran has hanged two members of the opposition People's Mujahedeen convicted over the 2009 post-election turmoil.

The official IRNA news agency said Jafar Kazemi and Mohammad Ali Hajaghaei were executed Monday after an appeals court upheld their death sentences.

It said they filmed and distributed footage of massive anti-government protests that swept Iran after the disputed presidential election in June 2009.
