Tehran, Iran - Iran Rejects Charge In Plot To Kill Saudi Envoy
Tehran, Iran - Iran is rejecting U.S. claims that Iran was involved in a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to Washington.
IRNA, the official Iranian news agency, calls the accusations by the U.S. Justice Department as “America’s new propaganda scenario” against Iran, without elaborating.
The Justice Department accuses agents of the Iranian government of involvement in a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States, with help from a suspected member of a Mexican drug cartel.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday the U.S. would hold Iran accountable. Two people, one of them a member of Iran’s special operations unit known as the Quds Force, were charged in New York federal court.
