Our government agreed not to stamp the passports of some of them because they were on transit flights for two hours, and they were resuming their flights without having their passports stamped. However their movements were under the complete supervision of the Iranian intelligence.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the architect of the 9/11 terror attack, previously alleged several highjackers transited through the Islamic Republic to Afghanistan because Saudi passports were rarely stamped.
