Iran arrests 'a number' of Baha'is

TEHRAN — A number of Bahais who were "promoting their faith in kindergartens" have been arrested, a prosecutor in the southern city of Bam was quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying on Saturday.

"A number of Bahais who were promoting their programmes under the guise of kindergartens in Bam, Kerman and Tehran were arrested by intelligence agents after nine months of intelligence work," prosecutor Mohammad Reza Sanjari said.

"This group had also infiltrated a local newspaper in Kerman province and were weaving Bahai views into children's stories," Sanjari added without naming the publication.

Bahai leaders believe a total of 47 members of their religion are imprisoned in Iran simply for their beliefs.
