TEHRAN -- Two people arrested during recent demonstrations in Shiraz, southern Iran, have been found guilty of "warring against God", which carries heavy penalties including death, a press report said Tuesday.

The conservative daily Abrar quoted local judiciary head Hossein Ali Amiri as disclosing the verdict of the court but not the sentence.

A lawyer told AFP that under the Islamic republic's laws, "warring against God" is punishable by death, amputation or exile.
