Three people were hanged for their involvement in the bombing of a mosque that killed 25 people, Iran's official news agency reported on Saturday. IRNA quoted a statement issued by the local judiciary department as saying that the three, Haji Nouti Zehi, Gholam Rasoul Shahoo Zehi and Zabihollah Naroui, were hanged ahead of the funeral of those killed in southeastern Iran. The report said the three provided explosive materials for the men who carried out the Thursday bombing in Zahedan, 1,000 miles southeast of the capital Teheran.
