Bounty placed on Barak


A radical Iranian student group placed a $400,000 bounty on Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

The Islamic Student Justice Seekers made the announcement Sunday, according to the Iranian News agency IRNA.

It also placed $300,000 bounties each for the killing of two other senior members of the Israeli security establishment, Mossad chief Meir Dagan and the head of military intelligence, Amos Yadlin.

The action was taken as revenge for last month’s assassination of Hezbollah mastermind Imad Mughniyeh, which the student organization blames on Israel.

The organization has asked supporters to donate a kidney to increase the bounties.
