The Haziratu’l-Quds was confiscated

Description of the Cover Page

Last week was one of the most eventful weeks of the year. The ambassador of the Soviet Union suddenly left for Moscow (See page 3). The Haziratu’l-Quds was taken over by the Military Command (see pages 3, 4 and 5). [There was an] uproar on the discovery of a treasure in Kerman, which had a strong reflection both locally and internationally (See page 6). Finally, a number of armed robbers on the Karaj Road attacked a cash-in-transit truck containing two-and-a-half million rials. When the robbery was almost complete, the driver, with unbelievable bravery, suddenly rescued the truck from the robbers (See page 6).

The picture on the top right section of the cover [page] is [Anatoly] Lavrentiev, the ambassador of the Soviet Union. On the left is General Bakhtiar, the military commander in the Haziratu’l-Quds. On the bottom right section are the robbers of Karaj Road, and on the [bottom] left [is a photo of] Mr. Salar Behzadi, Member of Parliament, [regarding] the uproar that has been raised about the discovery of treasure on his family properties.
