* * Friday prayer leader of the south eastern township of Iranshahr, Province of Sistan & Baluchestan killed. On, Saturday, October 2nd, Hojjat ol’Eslam Aziz Abdollahi, leader of Iranshahr’s Aal’eh Nabi mosque who was on route to inspect his farmlands was assailed by an individual who the Iranian regime claims to have identified and who is responsible for the murder of four other individuals over the last two years.

It is worth mentioning that the Province of Sistan & Baluchestan is the region where the Jundallah or the People’s Resistance Movement of Iran (PRMI) originate.

* * Below: A video of the Iranian Minister of Transportation, Hamid Behbahani being interviewed by the state-run TV news about the inferior state of Iranian airlines. Behbahani says: “Over the last few years, there has been no change in airline ticket prices and all of our airlines are in debt; they still owe three to four years of their fuel costs. Plus they also have not been able to do any upgrades and restorations. Obviously therefore, we need new planes; and if we keep going with planes that can no longer function and crash, well, that is obviously not right. So we really need to have airlines companies upgrade themselves. For example, there is not a lot of difference between a plane and bus, though there must be a great deal of difference. Planes are for urgent matters. We have trains that can be used, buses…those who need to be time conscious and need to travel in urgency…”

The interviewer asks: “When the high price of fuel becomes a real issue, will we not see an increase in the ticket prices?”

Behbahani replies: “Well, at that point, we’ll have to then look into it…”
