Claiming Responsibility for Assassinating a Shoemaker in Tehran

The Mojahedin-e Khalq terrorist group took responsibility for assassination of a shoemaker in Tehran in 1984.

The MEK has confessed to this crime in No.201 of the Mojahed.

Based on this confession, a man named Ali Akbar Shirazi was wounded by a grenade that an MEK member threw and was hospitalized on April 3, 1984. Due to the severity of the injuries, he died in the hospital a few days later.

By referring to the Encyclopedia of Names of Martyrs (vol.41, p. 1228), it is determined the victim has been a thirty-five-year-old shoemaker who was assassinated on April 11, 1984.
