Assassination attempt on Khamenei's representative foiled in Iran - media

Iran's security forces have foiled the attempted assassination of Ayatollah Mohammad Reza Nasseri-Yazdi, the local representative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in Yazd on Monday, ISNA reported.

According to the agency, multiple attackers armed with knives and bladed weapons attempted to enter Nasseri-Yazdi’s home, but were spotted by the Imam’s bodyguards, who detained four would-be assassins, with several other attackers managing to escape.

Multiple Iranian cities were engulfed in violent protests starting Friday after the government raised fuel prices.
