Iranian forces kill 4 PJAK members

Iranian security forces killed four members of a PJAK group involved in deadly clashes last year in the northwest of the country, state media said on Sunday.

"Personnel of the Intelligence Ministry ambushed and killed a four-member team, affiliated to the Komouleh terrorist group, responsible for the deaths of three security officers in that province in late December," the report on state television said, citing the ministry in West Azerbaijan province.

Komouleh is a name for the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK), an offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

Iran said the group was behind the death of a Justice Ministry official in Khoy city in West Azerbaijan last month.
