Iran thwarted a number of bombing plots in the capital Tehran and other cities, the Intelligence Ministry said on Monday, in what it called a major plot by militants against the Islamic Republic.

“In a criminal plot of the anti-Islamic terrorist takfiri groups, a series of bombings had been planned in several places of the country for the coming days ... the terrorists were arrested and some bombs and a huge amount of explosives were seized,” the ministry said in a statement on state news agency IRNA.

Takfiri is a term used by Iranian authorities to describe Sunni militant groups.

It said further information in this regard will be provided after more investigations and interrogation of the culprits.
