Court Sentences 8 IS Terrorists to Death

A court in Tehran has issued death sentences for eight terrorists from the self-styled Islamic State group over their role in an attack that killed 17 people in Tehran last year.  
“The court has found that these people deserve the death penalty for assisting corruption on earth (a Qoranic term in Islamic Law for those convicted to death),” Head of Tehran’s Revolutionary Court Moussa Qazanfarabadi said Sunday, Fars News Agency reported.
They have 20 days to appeal.
The eight convicted to death are among 26 members of the IS terror group that claimed responsibility for a simultaneous attack on the  parliament and the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, in June 2017.
Qazanfarabadi said the cases of 18 other terror suspects will be looked into by the court.
