Tehran, Iran, Sep. 14 – Iranian authorities hanged three individuals in the oil-rich province of Khuzestan, south-west Iran, state media reported earlier this week.

The unnamed individuals were hanged after the State Supreme Court upheld their sentences earlier this week, said Mousa Piriai, the prosecutor in the provincial capital Ahwaz. He comments were reported by the official news agency IRNA on Thursday.

The three people were accused of involvement in deadly bombings in the restive province more than a year ago. Khuzestan, which borders Iraq, has a large Arab population.

In February, three men hanged for having a role in the bombings. In January, authorities in Ahwaz hanged four men facing similar charges. Three other Arab men were also executed in December for alleged involvement in the attacks.

Dissident Arab activists in Khuzestan have accused the government of setting up trump charges against Arab activists fighting against Tehran’s “repressive policies”.

A string of top Iranian officials, including hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have accused Britain of being behind the bombings in Ahwaz. Tehran has repeatedly accused the British secret services of training ethnic Iranian Arabs in southern Iraq and sending them to Iran to carry out sabotage operations.

London has repeatedly denied any involvement in the events in the region.
