Security forces in Iran have arrested tens of spies working in state bodies, Intelligence Minister said on Tuesday.
"I have repeatedly asked people to inform us if they know any dual national. The intelligence ministry’s anti-espionage unit has successfully identified and arrested tens of spies in different governmental bodies,” Alavi added.
Alavi also said that security forces arrested this month a member of the Daesh militant group in southern Iran, and had disbanded a “terrorist cell” in the country’s north.
He said the intelligence ministry had foiled several bombing plots in metro stations and universities, but did not make any of this public at the time.
