UK police arrest assailants on Iran embassy

News ID: 4116685 -
TEHRAN, Oct. 17 (MNA) – London police have arrested the two assailants of an organized group called ‘Restart’ who stormed the Iranian embassy in UK on Saturday.

The attackers had sprayed the symbol of the group on the embassy’s wall.

Their timely arrest thanks to the coordination from the staff of Iranian embassy in London and the prompt presence of London police at the scene prevented the two attackers from dealing more damage to the embassy, which usually includes setting fire to buildings.

One of the police officers at the scene noted that the assailants are under interrogation for determining their motives and other possible members of the group operating in UK, and stressed the resolve of the UK police force for guaranteeing security of foreign embassies.

Recently, members of this group stormed Manchester Islamic Centre in the northwest England and dealt considerable damage to the building. They uploaded a video of the attack on social media.

The police may open a separate judicial case against the members of the group and possibly their leader in the US.
