DUBAI - Iran executed a man on Sunday for links with the People's Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI), an exiled Iranian opposition group, the semi-official Fars news agency said.

Fars said Iran had charged Gholamreza Khosravi Savajani with providing financial assistance to the PMOI, which seeks the removal of the Islamic Republic's clerical leadership.

At the time of his arrest, Fars said, Iranian police found video and documents describing "important centers including military installations" which had been passed on to the PMOI.

Tehran deems the PMOI a terrorist group. The PMOI, otherwise known as the Mujahidin-e-Khalq (MEK), helped overthrow the Shah during Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution but later broke with Shi'ite Muslim clerics who took power.
