    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran executed eight men convicted over the 2017 Islamic State attack on parliament and the shrine of the Islamic Republic's founding ayatollah, the bloodiest terror attack to strike Tehran in decades, authorities said Saturday.

    The June 7, 2017 attack has so far been the only assault by the Sunni extremists inside of Shiite Iran, which has been deeply involved in the wars in Iraq and Syria where the militants once held vast territory. IS has since have been beaten back by Iranian-aided Shiite militias in Iraq, as well as by a U.S.-led coalition operating in both countries, though Iran has made other arrests involving the group in the time since.

    Good! Look at that, a little over 1 year and they get their comeuppance. It would

    save so much money if we did that in the US. :aargh:
