Six male Iranian alleged secret agents were arrested in Trablus, Libya with Turkish passports as two of the documents listed female names, daily Hürriyet has reported.

Libyan authorities also realized that the passports were much older than the photos in them.

Two agents were taken for interrogation by Libyan authorities and the Iranian Embassy was informed of the incident.

The embassy has confirmed that the arrested people were Iranian citizens.

The arrested people said they had pretended to be Turkish citizens to be received sympathetically by locals.

According to claims, the Iranian agents had planned to demonstrate pretending to be Turkish citizens.

ILKER and DIREN So why is it that you don't support the "Evil, War mongering" West's attempts to curtail Iran? Why are you always bashing the USA when they try to do something to free the World from the real evil?

Yes OF COURSE. Because when people go on vacations they ALWAYS have fake passports with them to be received more sympathetically by locals. This is sickening, these spies/agents could potentially damage Turkey's image. It's the initial report that counts, if they would have done a terrorist attack got caught and claimed to be a Turkish agents for example. Those initial reports are the ones everyone reads .. Even if later it's reported that they are Iranian spies. The damage would have been done

The fools in iran are causing trouble for everyone in the ME just like the evil murdering israelis who send out death squads with stolen passport of other nations. Both Iran and israel are states which cause so many people trouble and misery.
