Iran holds four 'UK-linked men' for killings - state TV

Iran says it has arrested four men allegedly paid by a man based in Britain to carry out assassinations, an official state TV station reports.

Press TV said the four "Britain-linked terrorists" were detained in the western city of Marivan.

The men are accused of carrying out five assassinations in the past two years for money, Press TV reports.

In London, the UK government dismissed the story as the latest in a line of "baseless Iranian allegations".
