Iran announces arrest of suspects in assassination of senior IRCG commander
Iran says it has arrested several suspects behind the killing of an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps colonel that has been blamed on Israel.
Reuters quotes judiciary spokesman Masoud Setayeshi announcing the arrests.
Colonel Hassan Sayyad Khodaei was killed in May by a gunman on the back of a motorcycle as he sat in his car outside his home.
Khodaei’s assassination was the most high-profile killing inside Iran since the November 2020 killing of top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, also blamed on Israel.
