Iran 'murder plot'

Iran said it had arrested more than 20 people in a plot to assassinate President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani last week, and held the United States and Israel responsible, Reuter reports. The Information Minister (Intelligence), Ali Fallahiyan, said that a man held after shots were fired when Mr Rafsanjani was making a speech last Tuesday was a member of a 'clandestine terrorist group'.
