Al-Qaeda preachers seized in Iran

Al-Qaeda preachers seized in Iran

Seven al-Qaeda insurgents have been arrested in the city of Sardasht, in northwestern Iran. They were involved in preaching wahhabism and salafiyya, attempting to split the Shiites and the Sunnis. The arrest is a rare case as Iran shelters many al-Qaeda warlords who fled there after the US Operation Enduring Freedom was launched  in 2001.
