Iran Diplomat Arrested over Plot to Attack Iranian Opposition Meeting in France
An Iranian diplomat has been arrested along with two people suspected of plotting a bomb attack on a meeting outside Paris of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), Belgian authorities said on Monday. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former U.S. ambassador to the UN Bill Richardson, and former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper were among those attending the meeting held on Saturday.
The two suspects in Belgium, Amir S., 38, and Nasimeh N., 33, were intercepted by Belgian police on Saturday with 500 grams of TATP explosive and a detonation device. A diplomat at the Iranian embassy in Vienna who was linked to the case was arrested in Germany. (Reuters-Telegraph-UK)
