Iran arrests 50 people in connection with rial crash

Iran's intelligence minister announced on Wednesday that around 50 people have been arrested on charges of disrupting the national currency market.
Hojjatol-Islam Heidar Moslehi said that those arrested had conspired with Iran's enemies to instigate economic instability, disrupt the currency markets and incite 'fitna' or sedition.  Speaking after a cabinet meeting, Moslehi said that Iran's intelligence officials had achieved "very good results in detecting the roles [played by] foreigners and foreign television networks" in the economic chaos, according to a report in Fars News, which is affiliated with Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
