Iran supreme leader says protests a 'conspiracy'

Iranian state media is quoting its supreme leader as calling recent mass protests against government-set gasoline prices rising a conspiracy.


Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the comment Wednesday while addressing members of the Revolutionary Guard's all-volunteer Basij force, which help put down the demonstrations.


Khamenei in part blamed the U.S., without offering any evidence to support his claim.
