Iranian body cites BBC claims as baseless

New York, Nov 13, IRNA – Iran’s Interest Section in Washington on Thursday described the BBC News Channel’s claims as baseless and sheer lie.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) had claimed that officials of this Iranian body had ignored murders of three Iranian nationals in New York last year.

According to New York police, three members of two Iranian music bands who were living and working in the United States were shot and killed in Brooklyn last year by a fellow rocker who then turned the gun on himself.

Mehdi Atefat, caretaker of Iran’s Interest Section underlined that the bureau’s officials expressed sympathy with the families of the victims and fully cooperated with them.

The bureau was in direct contact with the victims’ families and took necessary measures to transfer their corpses to Iran, Atefat added.
