TEHRAN (Reuters) - A judge and five members of the same family were killed in the Iranian capital during a dispute, local media quoted judicial sources as saying.
"A judge was killed and five other people were also killed during the incident in northern Tehran," state radio said on Saturday. "The judiciary confirmed the report," it said.
The semi-official Fars news agency said the killings on Thursday were carried out by a member of the family, correcting the state radio that said earlier the judge had been assassinated.
"A middle-aged male member of the family shot dead judge Mohammad Mansouri and the other five people with a firearm in his hand," Fars said.
Such incidents are rare in Iran, particularly in Tehran.
