Denmark arrests 3 accused of praising Ahvaz terror attack

TEHRAN, Nov. 07 (MNA) – Danish police have arrested three members of an Iranian opposition group Wednesday on suspicion of having praised those behind a Sept. 22 terrorist attack in Iran that killed at least 25 people.

Police spokesman Bjoerke Kierkegaard said that would violate Danish laws and they could face fines or up to two years in prison.

Kierkegaard said all three are members of the Al-Ahwazi tmovement that are responsible for the deadly attack in the Iranian city of Ahvaz, Khuzestan province.

The men were held on preliminary charges — a step short of formal charges.
