Iranian authorities have arrested 30 people suspected of belonging to a “satanist network” at an event with “alcoholic drinks”, local media reported Thursday in the latest such raid in recent weeks.

A total of “18 men and 12 women” were arrested at a gathering in the northern province of Mazandaran, Fars news agency reported, without specifying when the raid took place.

Police forces seized “alcoholic drinks and drugs” and found “signs and symbols of satanism” at the site of the gathering, Fars quoted provincial police chief Davood Safarizadeh as saying.
