From Press TV:
Shiraz bombers admit US, Zionist links
24 May 2008
Iran’s Prosecutor General has said perpetrators of the deadly blast in the Iranian city of Shiraz have confessed to links to the US and Israel.
“The secular agents behind the brutal and terrorist bombing of a religious and cultural center in Shiraz have confessed to having links to the world arrogance, in particular the United States and the Zionist regime,” IRNA quoted Qorbanali Dorri-Najafabadi as saying.
He added that countries which claim to be defending human rights have no qualms about threatening the Iranian nation with bombs and violence.
“Apparently, the group has also carried out one or two minor operations in other parts of the country. The Islamic world is currently aware of the US plots against Muslims,” he said.
The US and other elements of the world arrogance are enemies of the Holy Qur’an and independence of Islamic countries, he noted, stressing that Muslims should remain vigilant against the deceitful acts of the US and its Zionist ally.
Najafabadi noted that 10 bombers involved in the event and other agents cooperating with the group outside Fars Province have been arrested so far and investigations are underway to identify and arrest other members of the group.
The explosion on April 12 killed 13 people and injured more than 200 in a religious and cultural center in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz.
