Three Iranian policemen killed in bombing: Report
Tehran: An Iranian state-owned newspaper says three policemen in western Iran have been killed by a roadside bomb detonated by Kurdish rebels.
The Thursday report by the Iran daily says Gen Faramarz Hosseinzadeh, the local chief of border police, and two other policemen were killed after members of the Party for Free Life in Kurdistan, or PEJAK, detonated a roadside bomb near the town of Piranshahr, some 560 miles (900 kilometres) west of Tehran.
It does not say when the incident happened.
In May, five Kurdish activists were hanged in Iran after being convicted of membership in PEJAK and of involvement in bombings.
PEJAK is the Iranian wing of the Kurdistan Workers` Party, or PKK, which says it is fighting for autonomy in southeast Turkey.
