(JNS.org) A court in
Thailand has convicted two Iranians who were part of a botched bomb plot last
year, CNN reported.
Saied Moradi, 29, who lost both legs in the explosion, was
found guilty of attempted murder and sentenced to life in prison, while
Muhammad Khazaei, 43, was sentenced to 15 years in jail for causing explosions
and damaged to property.
Meanwhile, a third man, who escaped authorities after the
bomb went off in a villa in Bangkok, escaped to Malaysia. Two other suspects
are believed to still be on the run.
Israel has alleged that the group of men was part of a
terrorist cell that was plotting to assassinate Israeli diplomats in Thailand.
Israeli officials and tourists abroad have been the target of
Iranian and Hezbollah for years, including recent attacks and attempted attacks
in Bulgaria and Cyprus. The Bangkok explosion came a day after Israeli
diplomats were targeted by bombs in India and Georgia.
