Tehran Police Chief, Major General Hossein Rahimi, announced the arrest of a person wearing an explosive belt at one of the entrances to the Iranian capital days ago.
Major General Rahimi added, at the direction of opposition groups, a person who was intending to carry out a suicide attack and shootings was arrested in one or two regions of Tehran.
He said that the person was in possession of weapons, an explosive belt, incendiary materials, remote control devices, and other equipment.
Rahimi indicated that the arrested person was in possession of a bomb hidden under his clothes and threatened the police forces to detonate it, explaining that one of the police officers threw himself at him to neutralize the bomb.
The Tehran police chief described the arrest process as dangerous and terrifying, as he could have exploded himself among the police, and the process took about forty-five minutes.
