Iran media: Israel-linked 'mercenaries' arrested

Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's official news agency says the country's intelligence department has dismantled an Israeli-linked assassination and sabotage network.

The Tuesday report by Irna says several "mercenaries" were arrested in different parts of the country and that large quantities of weaponry and telecommunications equipment were seized.

It said more details will be revealed at an appropriate time in the future.

Iran periodically announces the capture or execution of alleged U.S. or Israeli spies, and often no further information is released.
