- TEHRAN (AFP) -- Residents of northern Iran have reported
a string of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) moving at low altitudes
and emitting different colours, the state news agency IRNA reported today.
- A resident of the northwestern city of Tabriz, Saina
Haghkish, was quoted as saying she saw one object flashing red, green and
blue moving slowly from the east to west late yesterday.
- Identical sightings were also reported on Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday over the northeastern town of Ghonbad-Kavous, situated on
the opposite southeastern edge of the Caspian Sea.
- But astronomy professor Ajab Shirizadeh told IRNA that
while the presence over the Islamic republic of extra-planetary craft could
not be ruled out, the sightings could also be attributed to spy or communications
