Security Sources: Evidence of Iran in February Attacks


Evidence found in the international investigation of attempts to harm Israeli diplomats in India, Thailand and Georgia, last February, clearly indicate that Iran was involved in attacks, according to Western intelligence officials cited Sunday by Britain's The Guardian newspaper.

One intelligence official told the paper, "It's very hard to see the logic behind [the February bombings], other than perhaps demonstrate an ability to cause problems in the event of war or a desire for revenge of some kind." The Tehran government has blamed Israel for the deaths of scientists associated with its nuclear development program.
