MKO Cell Smashed in Western City

Iran’s security forces disbanded a local outfit linked to the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization terrorist group, which had carried out acts of sabotage during recent protests in some Iranian cities over rising prices and economic problems. According to Lorestan Province’s intelligence office, the MKO-affiliated terrorists were identified and arrested in the western city of Borujerd on Friday, Press TV reported. It said four members of the terrorist cell were arrested through intelligence operations and one was injured in clashes. The terrorists have been involved in many acts of sabotage in Lorestan, particularly in Borujerd, in recent days. Last week, a spate of protests over economic problems broke out in several Iranian cities, but the gatherings turned violent when groups of participants, some of them armed, vandalized public property and launched attacks on police stations and government buildings. The Intelligence Ministry also said in a statement on Thursday that security forces had dismantled a terrorist group and arrested its members in the northwestern province of West Azarbaijan. According to the statement, the terror group “had infiltrated into Iran with the aim of fueling the recent unrest.”
