TEHRAN – The Iranians planning to travel to Iraq to observe the Arbaeen mourning later this month will be checked by the Iranian police in “six separate layers” to detect any undocumented travelers, the  deputy interior minister for security affairs said on Wednesday.

The multi-layered security measures are meant to prevent unauthorized travels to Iraq and halt pilgrims heading to border crossings without a passport or an Iraqi visa, Hossein Zolfaqari announced, Tasnim reported.
