Iranian state TV is reporting that authorities have executed two men convicted of a 2010 bombing at a military parade in northwestern Iran that killed 12 spectators.
State TV reported Tuesday the two, who were hanged, were members of a bombing network that was dismantled in 2013. It said some of the victims' families attended the execution in Urmia prison in northwest Iran.
In September 2010, a blast at a military parade in the city of Mahabad close to Iran's borders with Iraq and Turkey, killed 12 and wounded 75.
