NNA - 

An Iranian intelligence officer was killed in a stabbing attack in the western Iranian city of Sahneh on Friday, according to local authorities.

The officer, identified as Nader Beirami, was in charge of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) intelligence service in the city, semi-official Tasnim news agency reported, citing the IRGC intelligence service in the western province of Kermanshah.

He was stabbed in the heart unarmed when trying to protect a pedestrian against thugs during unrest in the city, said the report, adding the stabbers were some "mutineers" who had instigated violence and riots during an event in commemoration of a local artist.

Confirming the report, Sahneh's Governor Jahanbakhsh Zanganeh-Tabar said those involved in the attack were immediately arrested by security forces. --- XINHUA
