"During this year's Arbaeen, the number of pilgrims leaving the country exceeded 4 million, breaking the annual record" Iran’s Police Chief Ahmad Reza Radan said on an inspection to Chazzabeh border crossing in the southwest of the country on Thursday.
He said that Arbaeen pilgrims set a new record this year, stressing that the Iranian took part in the religious event hugely despite enemies’ propaganda campaign to discourage them from participating in the ceremonies.
"More than 10 nationals of different countries have gone to Iraq through Iranian border crossings," the commander of the police or the Law Enforcement said.
General Radan said that as many as 400,000 nationals of other countries participated in Arbaeen march in Iraq after crossing Iranian borders.
