Three border suspects linked to Iran attack: Pakistan police
Quetta: Three Iranians arrested today for
illegally entering Pakistan may have been linked to last
month`s deadly bomb attack in Iran, Pakistani police said.
The three Iranian Baluchis were arrested at the border
town of Turbat, around 500 kilometres west of Quetta, in
Pakistan`s southwestern province of Baluchistan, Raoof Breach,
Turbat`s police chief, said to a news agency.
"We suspect they may have some links with the suicide
attack in Iran," Breach added, referring to the October 18
attack in which 42 people, including 15 members of Iran`s
elite Revolutionary Guard, were killed.
The attack took place in the town of Pisheen, in Iran`s
restive Sistan-Baluchestan province, which borders Pakistan.
Breach said all of those arrested were young.
"They have no documents, and crossed the border some
days ago. We are questioning them," he said.
Iran has said those responsible for the October 18
attack were based in Pakistan and has demanded that Islamabad
hand over Abdolmalek Rigi, the leader of the Sunni rebel group
Jundallah (Soldiers of God).
Islamabad has strongly denied that Jundallah launched
the attack from its territory.
