Three men confessed at the start of their trial to involvement in the fatal bombing of a mosque in the southern city of Shiraz in April, state media reported on Saturday. Iran has said the United States, Britain and Israel were involved in the blast that killed 14. Iran had initially said the explosion was an accident caused by explosives left over from an exhibition about the 1980s Iran-Iraq war. Ali Akbar Haidarifar, representing Tehran's prosecutor general, called for the death sentence for those behind the blast which also wounded 200, the official IRNA news agency reported. Haidarifar said the group had planned other attacks. The three confessed in the hearing at a revolutionary court, IRNA said. Such courts handle national security cases.

And it took 7 months for them to "confess!"

Isn't it amazing that it was first announced this was the result of an explosion inside the mosque and now after seven months, three people "confess" to having done this on directions from US, Britain, and Israel?  Four more suspects' trials will follow.  The judicial and security system of Iran leave something to be desired for objectivity and justice.
