Flyers Were Distributed Around One of the Factories

Several youth, who were distributing printed papers near one of the factories, were arrested at 8:30 last night. Asadollah Khaledi, Mohammad Hesabi, and Asadollah, the son of Abdollah, had approached the factory with packages of the printed notices, and distributed the papers and chanted slogans when they found the streets around the factory were quiet.

Police arrested all three young men and collected the leaflets. The youth introduced themselves during the interrogation as high school students, and explained that their actions had been of a religious character.

It is said that statements against the Baha’is were written in these leaflets.
