Iran kills four ‘terrorists’: report

TEHRAN — Four rebels belonging to a “Wahabi terrorist” group have been killed near Sanandaj, capital of the Iranian province bordering Iraq, a top official was quoted by the Fars news agency as saying on Friday.

“The four remaining members of a terrorist group… were killed in armed clashes with security agents in Hasan Abad village near Sanandaj,” Iraj Hasanzadeh, a deputy governor general of Kurdistan province, was quoted as saying.

Iranian media have repeatedly reported on clashes between security forces and members of banned Iranian-Kurdish rebel group PJAK, the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan, in the western Islamic republic operating from bases in neighbouring Iraq and Turkey.

Western Iran has a sizeable Kurdish minority.
