Iran Kills Men Working Against Them

Iran has executed four men accused of working with Israel’s intelligence service.

The sentences for “intelligence cooperation” with Israel and “kidnapping” were carried out on Sunday.

Iran’s Supreme Court had upheld death penalties against them on Wednesday following their arrest in May.

The executions come at a time of heightened tensions in Iran after more than two months of protests.

Three other people were sentenced to between five and 10 years in prison for crimes against the country’s security, complicity in kidnapping and possession of weapons.

Iran and Israel are fierce regional rivals, and have been engaged in a long-running shadow war against each other.
