Iran’s INRA news agency is reporting that the country’s “morality police chief” General Muhammad Masood Zahidian has said that his force has arrested 21 people who were making satellite receivers.

The police seized 640 receivers being manufactured from a total of six different small factories in Tehran and Alborz provinces.

Among the detainees there were citizens of other countries, and they were deported to their home countries, Zahidian is quoted as saying.
