Jundallah terrorist executed in Iran
Iran has executed convicted terrorist Abdolhamid Rigi — the brother of the leader of Jundallah terrorist group — in the southeastern city of Zahedan.
Abdolhamid was hanged in a central prison in the capital of Sistan-Baluchestan Province, Zahedan, on Monday after he confessed to playing a role in the assignations of civilians and security forces in the province.
Abdolhamid had also been charged with carrying out armed robberies, bombing operations and drug trafficking.
Earlier confessions made by Abdolhamid confirmed reports that Washington aided and abetted the armed terrorist group in carrying out its terror activities in Iran.
In a 2009 interview with Press TV, Abdol-hamid revealed that since 2005, his brother had repeatedly met with US agents in the Pakistani cities of Islamabad and Karachi and maintained communication with them through a common link.
His brother, Abdolmalek Rigi, the captured ring leader of the Jundallah terrorist group, is also charged with carrying out assassinations and bomb attacks.
Abdolmalek has also spoken of links with suspected Israeli or US agents who had offered him money and given him a list of people to assassinate in the Iranian capital of Tehran.
The terrorist ring has so far claimed responsibility for a chain of deadly bombings and violent attacks in Iran as a result of which dozens of civilians lost their lives.
