Albania says it's discovered an Iranian paramilitary network

Albanian police said on Wednesday they have discovered an Iranian paramilitary network that allegedly planned attacks in Albania against exiled members of an Iranian group seeking to overthrow the government in Tehran.


Police chief Ardi Veliu said the foreign wing of Iran's Revolutionary Guard operated an "active terrorist cell" targeting Mujahedin-e Khalq, or MEK, group members in Albania.


He did not say what the alleged plot involved, or whether any arrests were made.


A police statement alleged that two Iranian top security officials led the cell from Tehran.
