Iranian regime claims to have arrested 6 over bomb attack

Iran focus

The local head of the judiciary in the northern province of Mazandaran said six people were arrested by Intelligence Ministry agents in connection with an attempt by members of the opposition People’s Mojahedin (PMOI) to plant bombs in several cities in the province, the state-run Jahan news website reported on Saturday.
Hojjatoleslam Hossein Talebi told journalists that judicial officials in Ramsar had ordered the arrests, and further reports on the matter were expected.
The announcement came just days after Iran's Intelligence Minister, Hojjatoleslam Heydar Moslehi, claimed with much fanfare that two PMOI teams had been arrested while attempting to plant bombs in public places in the capital.
The PMOI in a statement last week denied categorically that its members had been arrested or that they had been attempting to plant bombs.
"These absolutely false claims reflect the clerical regime's delirium, which is increasingly desperate in confronting the rise in popular protests and the increase in support by the Iranian people for the PMOI. These futile attempts are designed to cover up the regime's growing crises and deepening internal rifts and reflect its inability to stop the nationwide uprising", it said.
