TEHRAN, April 26 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Intelligence Minister Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie said on Sunday that Iran has arrested members of a terrorist network in Tehran who were linked to Israel, the official IRNA news agency reported.
The terrorists who were planning to carry out bombings in Tehran have been identified and arrested, Mohseni Ejeie was quoted as saying.
The "terrorist team" was "linked to Zionist elements," he said, adding that they were intending to cause "disorder" and "insecurity" by launching successive explosions "ahead of the presidential elections" in Iran slated for June 12.
"According to the evidence, the Zionist regime is planning to connect to and guide the anti-revolution elements and to use them as a tool for its wicked ends," he said, but did not elaborate the details.
An Iranian intelligence ministry counter-espionage official has warned that Iranians should be in alert "about the serious danger of penetration of the Israeli intelligence services to Iran's internet and telecommunications network."
