Denmark Accuses Iran of Activist Assassination plot

Written by on November 2, 2018

Denmark has accused Iran’s intelligence agencies of planning to assassinate an Iranian activist on Danish soil.

Denmark’s intelligence service said the target was believed to be a member of an Arab separatist movement.

The Danish government has recalled its ambassador from Tehran and is consulting other EU countries about imposing new sanctions against Iran.

A massive police operation in Denmark last month linked to the case led to the bridge to Sweden being closed.

Iran has dismissed the allegations.

An Iranian foreign ministry spokesman said such “biased reports” and allegations pursued “the enemy’s plots and conspiracies” to harm the developing relations between Iran and Europe, according to Tasnim news agency.
