Iran executes brother of Jundollah leader: IRNA

Iran executed on Monday a brother of the jailed leader of group Jundollah (God's Soldiers), the official IRNA news agency reported.

Abdolhamid Rigi, a convicted Jundollah member, was hanged in a prison in the southeastern city of Zahedan, IRNA said.

Iran detained Jundollah leader Abdolmalek Rigi in February, accusing his group of being behind a bombing which killed dozens of people last year. Iranian officials say it has links to Britain and the United States.
