Iran has arrested four people it says were paid by a man based in Britain to carry out assassinations, says Iran’s official Press TV.

The report said the four “Britain-linked terrorists” had been detained in the western city of Marivan.

The men are alleged to have carried out five assassinations over the past two years in return for money, the state-run broadcaster said.

The report was published on the English language TV channel’s website.

The men are reported to have “confessed” to receiving orders while in the Iraqi city of Sulaimaniya from a man called Jalil Fattahi, who the report said was living in the UK.

Although promised some $20,000 (£12,400) per killing, the arrested men only received less than half that sum, the report says.

“The ministry says it has disclosed documents and confiscated weaponry from the terrorist group,” the report says.

The British Foreign Office says it is looking into the reports.
