"Iran has hanged 11 people linked to a Sunni rebel group that killed 39 people in a mosque bombing, the Justice Ministry said on Monday. ... President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad held a telephone conversation with his Pakistani counterpart Asif Ali Zardari, urging Pakistan to arrest 'identified terrorists' and hand them over to Iran, state television reported. The Justice Ministry said those executed were all supporters of Jundollah, which claimed a double suicide bombing of Shi'ite worshippers in the southeast on December 15." (12/20/10)
