Iran’s intelligence ministry says Iran has detained two European citizens over stalled talks on a nuclear deal.

It does not state the nationality of those detained, but says they are detained because of their “role in organizing the riots” in the Islamic Republic, according to local media.

“Two Europeans have been arrested in Iran for organizing riots in the country,” the ministry quoted the student news agency (ISNA) as saying without giving details.

This happened during the visit of the EU envoy to negotiate a stalled nuclear deal.
