December 7, 2004
Iran has confirmed it has tried and sentenced fugitive members of al-Qaeda detained on its soil, but maintained tight secrecy over which members of Osama bin Laden's network were in the Islamic republic.

"The sentences have been pronounced," a Tehran justice department official said, confirming a report from the semi-official Fars news agency that all al-Qaeda detainee cases had been treated in Tehran by a "special judge".

But the official refused to say who the accused were, how many of them there were, what verdicts were reached or how the sentences were handed out.

No further details were immediately available.

Just the sort of diatribe that one would expect from Iran. *reaches for a large grain of salt.*

Ill fill in the blanks:

"An Iranian justice official announced today that they have tried and convicted Al Qaeda operatives in a trial before a "Special Judge".

"Honorable special Judge Usama Bin Laden found the suspects guilty as charged and sentenced all to one year with a harem of thier choice in palaces made of gold."

"Other Iranian government official could not be reached as it was "Al Qaeda day" and all were in busy in US flag burning celebrations..."
