Iran denies allegations of organizing spy cell in Nigeria
Iran denied on Friday Nigerian allegations that it had trained militants arrested in Nigeria on charges of planning attacks on US and Israeli targets there. Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said such allegations were "made up as the result of the ill will of the enemies of the two countries' good relations," Iranian state television reported.

 

Nigeria's secret service said on Thursday it had arrested Abdullahi Mustapha Berende and two other Nigerians in December after Berende made several suspicious trips to Iran, where he interacted with Iranians in a "high-profile terrorist network." (Reuters).
