Kazakhs Expel Iranians

ALMATY, Kazakhstan -- Kazakhstan said Thursday it was expelling three Iranians arrested last month for alleged spying, but made clear it was not pressing charges to maintain good relations with Tehran.

"Unlawful activities by the Iranian citizens involving the collection of intelligence information directly affecting the security interests of Kazakhstan were confirmed in the course of investigations," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
