Iran dismantles 'terrorist group'
Tehran - Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards have dismantled a "terrorist group" and killed one of its members, they said in a statement broadcast on state television on Tuesday.
"A terrorist group that wanted to infiltrate Iran to commit terrorist attacks has been dismantled," the statement said.
"Two members of the group were arrested and another was killed," the television said without giving further details.
The group was reported to have been dismantled in Iran's southeast, which borders Afghanistan and Pakistan.
That region, including the Sistan-Baluchistan province, has in past decade become a frequent theatre for clashes between Iranian security forces and Sunni rebels.
In February, four rebels from the Jundallah group were killed in an ambush in the province. Iran hanged the leader of the group in June 2010.
Iran accuses US, British and Pakistani intelligence services of supporting Jundallah.
