Terrorists arrested in Muharram: Iranian Intelligence Min.


TEHRAN, Oct. 09 (MNA) – Iran’s Intelligence Minister, Alavi, says that the ministry has foiled some plots aimed to target Muharram rituals in Iran.

“A few people were identified and arrested during Muharram (the high season of public mourning ceremonies in Iran in the Islamic month of Muharram) by Iran’s intelligence ministry,” announced Iranian Intelligence Minister Seyyed Mahmoud Alavi, on Monday.

The senior official recounted that the detainees ‘held intentions to conduct sabotage operations and anti-security plots, but thank God, their plots have been foiled.’

“They intended to stage the operations in different provinces but they were not organized in teams and were acting individually,” added the Iranian official.
