Tehran has pointed the finger at a dissident group it considers a “sworn enemy” in an attempt to distance itself from US accusations that the Islamic regime in Iran conspired to kill the Saudi ambassador to Washington.

Iran’s semi-official Mehr news agency reported that one of the two suspects the US said were involved in a plot to hire a Mexican drug cartel to assassinate Adel al-Jubeir is a “key member” of an Iranian dissident group, the People’s Mujahideen of Iran (MEK).

“The person in question has been travelling to different countries under the names of Ali Shakuri/Gholam Shakuri/Gholam-Hossein Shakuri by using fake passports, including forged Iranian passports,” according to Mehr.

Last week, the US brought charges against an American-Iranian, Mansour Arabsiar, 56, who was arrested at New York’s JFK airport on 29 September, and Gholam Shakuri, an Iranian who remains at large in Iran, according to US officials.
