December 29, 2010

TEHRAN - Iran’s former deputy defense minister, Alireza Asgari, has died in an Israeli prison, Iran’s deputy foreign minister for Middle Eastern affairs announced on Tuesday.

Deputy Foreign Minister Mohammad Ra’ouf Sheibani expressed deep regret over the martyrdom of Asgari and has asked the international community to take immediate action against the Zionist regime for committing such a crime.
The action of the Zionist regime, which kidnapped Asgari with the cooperation of the United States, is a concrete example of state-sponsored terrorism, Sheibani stated.
Alireza Asgari was kidnapped by Mossad agents in Turkey on December 9, 2006.
