Iran arrests terror cell in southeast

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) announced on Monday that it has arrested some members of a terrorist group in southeast Iran.

The members of the terrorist group were arrested in the region of Sarbaz in the province of Sistan-Baluchestan, Press TV reported.

The IRGC gave no further details.

Sistan-Baluchestan Province has been the scene of a number of terrorist attacks in recent years. On January 1, a Sunni Basiji volunteer and a Shia teacher lost their lives in a terrorist attack in Sarbaz.

In late November 2014, three Iranian security forces were shot dead by unknown gunmen in the province.

Three Iranian police officers were also killed in early October last year when they came under a night attack by gunmen while on a mission in the city of Saravan in Sistan-Baluchestan Province.
