Template:Infobox civilian attack

A Norwegian citizen of Iranian descent was arrested and suspected of having planned Iranian intelligence operations in Denmark.[1][2][3] Both the Norwegian PST and the Danish PET also suspected the man to take part in the planning of an assassination against the leader of the Iranian group Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz. He was arrested in Gothenburg the 21 October 2018.[4][5][6] Denmark called for EU sanctions against Iran as a result.[7][8]

Accusations of spying and assassination attempt

Denmark's security services accused Iranian intelligence service of plotting an assassination on Danish territory. Danish police believe the Norwegian citizen observed and photographed outside the residence of a Danish-Iranian leader of the Iranian separatist movement ASMLA (an organization fights for independence for the Arabian-Iranian province Khuzestan).[5]

There is reason to believe that the detained who now is in custody, has observed and photographed the leader of ASMLA's residence between 25- 27 of September. He then intended to hand over the information gathered to Iranian authorities and also participating in the planning of an assassination plot of the ASMLA leader, which is stated in a press release from PET.[9][10] Two addition separatists living together in an apartment in Ringsted, 60km south-west of Copenhagen, were also targeted.[10] Iran regards ASMLA as a terrorist organization.[10] Norway summoned Iranian ambassador over the incident.[11][12] The suspect, as well as Iran’s Foreign Ministry, have denied the accusations.[13] In September 2018, Iran accused Denmark, the Netherlands, and Britain of hosting members of the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz, which Iran considers to be a "terrorist group" and accuses of being responsible for an attack in Ahvaz.[14]
