Security Forces have reportedly arrested two individuals affiliated with the Al-Qaeda terrorist group in the northwestern town of Sardasht.
The two militants, identified by their first names as Nemat and Nasser, were arrested two days ago by security forces in the northwestern province of West Azarbaijan, an informed official said on Thursday on the condition of anonymity.
"Notes and books related with the misleading cult of Wahhabism were confiscated from the detainees,” IRNA quoted the source as saying.
According to the official, the detainees, who were arrested on the charge of promoting Wahhabist ideology, would face trial in the near future.
In December, seven other Al-Qaeda members were arrested by security forces in the northwestern town of Sardasht.
The Al-Qaeda members propagated "Wahhabi and Salafi” ideologies in the country.
