Two men executed Thursday were convicted of involvement in an armed group aiming to topple 's clerical leadership, according to Teheran's top prosecutor.

State television earlier linked the executions to the unrest following June's disputed presidential election, saying they were among those convicted of involvement in rioting.

But prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi made no mention of the protests in a later statement to state TV, saying the two were members of a monarchical group and plotted assassinations of officials and bomb attacks.

The lawyer of one of the executed men said her client was arrested in April, before the election.

Dowlatabadi also said five other people have been sentenced to death for opposition protests.
