A number of persons involved in the recent terrorist attacks in Tehran have been arrested, Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi announced in Qom on Friday.
On Monday, two prominent physicists were targeted by
terrorists in two separate bombings. Professor Majid Shahriari was killed and
Professor Fereydoun Abbasi Davani was injured in the attacks. The two academics
were both on their way to work at Shahid Beheshti University in northern Tehran
when they were attacked. The police say that in both incidents, terrorists
riding motorcycles attached magnetic bombs to the physicists' cars.
Moslehi stated that the three intelligence agencies of Mossad, CIA and MI6 were involved in the terror acts.
The minister also said that those who were cooperating with these agencies, had plans to carry out massive operations.
"By arresting these persons, we have found new clues to arrest the other ones behind the incidents," he stated.
Moslehi did not announce the number of those who have been taken into custody.
"The enemy must be aware that they will reach nowhere through these actions", he noted.
