Mehr named the four accused and said they were "sentenced to death for the crime of co-operating with the intelligence services of the Zionist regime and for kidnapping."
It added that with guidance from Mossad, “this network of thugs was stealing and destroying private and public property, kidnapping people and obtaining fake confessions”.
Mehr said the accused had been arrested by the Revolutionary Guards and the ministry of intelligence.
Three other people were given prison sentences of between five and 10 years for allegedly committing crimes such as acting against national security, aiding in kidnapping, and possessing illegal weapons, the news agency added.
