Iran's deputy judiciary chief says the Islamic Republic has issued indictments against 18 unnamed current and former US officials on charges of involvement in "crimes against Iran." His remarks did not indicate that any of the men were present in Iran.
Ebrahim Raisi is quoted by the semiofficial Fars news agency Wednesday as saying that charges against the Americans include involvement in terrorist attacks. Raisi didn't provide any further details, but Iran has said it plans to complain to the UN about alleged US "terror" operations including assassinations of its nuclear scientists. (AP)
