Tehran’s Public Prosecutor Office says five people have been executed in the country over their involvement in bomb attacks and links to terrorist groups.

The convicts were hanged in Tehran’s Evin prison early Sunday.

Three of them were arrested in 2006, and convicted for their involvement in a failed bomb plot in the capital Tehran.

The attack was organized by the anti-Iranian terrorist group known as PJAK, which is the Iranian offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

The three were also in possession of weapons and explosives in their houses.

Another was captured after planting a bomb near a military base in Tehran, and later confessed to being a member of the same terrorist group.

The last of the five was convicted for complicity in a deadly bombing in the city of Shiraz in 2008.
