Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- The representative of Iraq's Southern province of Dhi Qar at the parliament said that Riyadh is behind the recent unrests in the province to assist the imprisoned Saudi terrorists escape.

"Saudi Arabia has plotted chaos in Nasiriyeh city in Dhi Qar province to help the Saudi prisoners flee," Abdol Amir Ta'iban al-Dabi said in an interview with the Arabic-language al-Ma'aloumeh news website on Tuesday.
