Suspects Arrested after Shiraz Terror Attack

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Four suspects have been arrested in connection with a deadly terrorist attack on the Shah-e Cheragh shrine in Iran’s southern city of Shiraz, a judicial official said.

“With the investigations carried out so far, four suspects linked to this incident have been arrested,” the chief justice of Fars province, Kazem Mousavi, said on Monday morning.

He added that the main terrorist, who started shooting at people in the shrine and was immediately arrested, has been handed over to investigators for interrogation and further investigation, Press TV reported.

At least two people have been killed and eight others injured in an armed terrorist attack at the Shah-e Cheragh shrine on Sunday evening.

The Daesh (aka ISIS or ISIL) terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the deadly assault.

The Shah-e Cheragh shrine was the scene of a similar attack by armed terrorists last year.

On October 26, 2022, an armed terrorist barged into the shrine, killing 15 pilgrims, including women and children, and injuring dozens more before he was shot and injured by security forces.
