Tehran, Iran, Oct. 16 – Iran’s Intelligence Ministry announced on Tuesday that it had arrested three individuals involved in a string of bombings more than a year ago in the city of Ahwaz, south-west Iran, state media reported.

The government-run news agency Mehr said the arrested individuals had admitted to having ties to “foreigners” and trying to instigate sectarian feuding. The Intelligence Ministry said the three individuals were members of a separatist group.

The ministry confiscated three pistols, two Kalashnikov rifles and some 2,000 rounds of ammunition from the arrested individuals, the official news agency IRNA reported.

Ahwaz, the capital of oil-rich Khuzestan Province, has a large Arab population.

A string of top Iranian officials, including hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have accused Britain of being behind the bombings in Ahwaz. Tehran has repeatedly accused the British secret services of training ethnic Iranian Arabs in southern Iraq and sending them to Iran to carry out sabotage operations.

London has repeatedly denied any involvement in the events in the region.
