Arbaeen rallies underway with acceptable security: Iran intel minister

Ilam, Oct 14, IRNA - Iran says Arbaeen rituals are being carried out with sound security, adding that the country has provided good intelligence operations to secure the event. 

“Nobody can carry out sabotage attacks during the Arbaeen marches as we are dominating the event perfectly,” said Hojatoleslam Mahmoud Alavi, Iran’s Intelligence Minister. 

He said while visiting Mehran border crossing on the Iraqi frontier where nearly 200,000 people cross into the neighboring country. 

Alavi mentioned that pilgrims are feeling secure as they march from Iran into Iraq to mark Arbaeen, the fortieth day of martyrdom of Imam Hussein (AS), the grandson of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
