Denmark arrest three members of Iranian Arab opposition group for espionage

COPENHAGEN, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Denmark’s intelligence agency said on Monday it had arrested three leading members of the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz (ASMLA) on suspicion of spying on behalf of a Saudi Arabian intelligence service.

ASMLA seeks a separate state for ethnic Arabs in Iran’s oil-producing southwestern province of Khuzestan. Arabs are a minority in Iran, and some see themselves as under Persian occupation and want independence or autonomy. (Reporting by Stine Jacobsen Editing by Peter Graff)
