Official dismisses rumors on presence of Al-Qaeda in Iran

IRNA – The international affairs assistant in the Iranian judiciary, Mohammad-Javad Larijani on Monday underlined that he has been misquoted on presence of Al-Qaeda members in the Iranian territory.

Those claiming such charges pursue media hype masterminded by foreign media, he said.

‘What I said was a direct quotation from the US investigation commission on September 11 claiming that Al-Qaeda members have commuted to the Iranian soil while their passports were cleared from entrance and exit stamps,’ Larijani said.
