Iran arrested several foreigners during Ashura protests


Iran has said several foreign nationals were arrested during anti-government demonstrations last week.

Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi said those detained had been “pursuing propaganda and psychological warfare”. He did not give their nationalities.

Some 300 of the 500 people arrested remain in detention after mass protests in Tehran on 27 December during the Shia Muslim festival of Ashura. BBC
