Situation in Tabriz under control Iran Embassy
Situation in Tabriz today is stabilized, reportedly said Majid Feizullahi, press attachГ© of Iranian Embassy to Azerbaijan.
Press attachГ© said the condition is being normalized steadily; the government is taking steps to eliminate the consequence of the assault, law-enforcement agents apprehended over 55 provokers and marauders, as well as those who set fire to bank and demolished some private facilities in the city.
Law-enforcement agencies are thoroughly investigating the case and all guilty will be prosecuted, Embassy official said.
Mass actions of protest took place in Iran a couple of days ago as a result of publishing anti-Azerbaijani articles and cartoons in Iran, which provoked Azeri public outrage. These actions were accompanied with damaging private facilities and buildings.
