Iran protests over US death plot claim
Iran has formally complained to the US over claims that the Iranian government was involved in an alleged plot to kill Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States.
A US official said a diplomatic note was received on Friday expressing displeasure with the accusations were levelled earlier this month, which the country denies.
The official said the note was delivered through the Swiss embassy in Tehran, which represents US interests in Iran since the two countries do not have diplomatic relations.
US government prosecutors claim an Iranian government agent was involved in plotting the assassination of the Saudi ambassador.
