TEHRAN (ISNA)-Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi said 20 people involved in the assassination of the country's nuclear scientists have been arrested.
Moslehi said Sunday that the arrests were made following the identification of two terrorist groups and through multiple operations across the country.
He added that more information about the places where the suspects had been arrested will be released in the future.
He added when a suspect is arrested is used to be an agent for arresting the other perpetrators involved in a crime.
Iranian Minister referred to the connection between this network and the other Zionist terrorist network which has already been identified and arrested by the Ministry, saying for sure there was a connection between the groups, but it was not directly inside the country.
Moslehi noted it was clarified that Zionist regime has supported the terrorist actions and has used the soil of many neighboring countries to fulfill the objective, adding by the identification of the network it was cleared that Zionist regime has used a neighboring country to perform its actions.
He added they have established a terrorist training base and a military garrison in the neighboring country, stressing that the U.S., Britain and Zionist regime' operation headquarters are deployed there and that they design different scenarios against Iran.
Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was targeted on January 11 when an unknown motorcyclist attached a magnetic bomb to his car near a college building in Tehran. He was immediately killed and his driver died a few hours later in hospital.
