Report: Iran dismantles terrorist sabotage network

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian news agency is reporting that security forces have dismantled a terrorist and sabotage network in southern city of Shiraz.

The semi-official ISNA says the network planned bombings and assassination attempts during Iran’s presidential election earlier this month.

The report on Tuesday did not say how many suspects were involved or give their names. It said the network had links with the CIA, Israel and some neighboring “reactionary” Arab nations.

From time to time Iran announces that it has dismantled espionage and sabotage cells linked to Israeli and Western intelligence services.
