ALBAWABA - Iranian authorities arrested four people on Thursday with links to an assault on a woman outside one of the girls' schools targeted by poisoning attacks.

A video was shared online showing a man assaulting a woman outside the Aban 13 School in Tehran. The clip was verified by AFP.

Local Iranian media said that four people were arrested in connection with an attack on a woman outside a school in the capital Tehran.

For the past three months, a wave of poisoning attacks has been targeting schoolgirls across Iran with an attempt to force shut the schools.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said that he assigned Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi to provide "continuous information on the results of the investigation" into the attacks.
