Sunni rebels killed 16 policemen they kidnapped in southeast Iran in June, the Mehr news agency reported on Thursday, quoting a high-ranking police officer. Deputy police commander Ahmad Reza Radan said "all policemen were martyred by Abdolmalek Rigi terrorist group," without actually giving the number killed. The Jundullah (Soldiers of God) group said they captured 16 Iranian border policemen on June 12 at a checkpoint in Saravan, before taking them across the border into Pakistan. He said officials are studying ways "to receive the bodies of these martyrs."
