Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

FARS* - In­tel­li­gence Min­is­ter Seyed Mah­moud Alavi has said sev­eral ter­ror­ist plots were thwarted dur­ing the holy month of Muhar­ram.

On Monday, he said that sev­eral peo­ple with plans to launch ter­ror at­tacks in mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions across the coun­try were iden­ti­fied and detained by Iran’s In­tel­li­gence Min­istry since the be­gin­ning of Muhar­ram. Muhar­ram, the first month of the Is­lamic cal­en­dar, marks the mar­tyr­dom an­niver­sary of the grand­son of prophet Mo­ham­mad and his com­pan­ions.

Alavi added that most of the detained ter­ror­ists did not be­long to any group and were work­ing in­de­pen­dently.
