Iran has detained three foreigners suspected of trying to join ISIS forces in neighboring Iraq, according to a Tuesday report in the state-owned newspaper Iran Daily. Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli is quoted saying border guards stopped several people trying to get to Iraq, which lead to “three cases of arrests.” The report said Pakistani nationals were included in the arrests, but it did not state how many, or when they took place. Iran has supported the Iraqi government in its fight against ISIS, and the predominately Shia country is providing military experts to combat the mostly Sunni militants. The news comes the day before President Obama is to address the American public about taking more robust steps to combat ISIS.
