Report: Iran Planning Ecological Attack in Persian Gulf

Iran plans to carry out an ecological attack in the Persian Gulf as a way of punishing its enemies and as part of a plot to force Western nations to cancel sanctions against the Tehran government's nuclear development program, according to a Sunday report by the German news magazine Der Spiegel.

Western intelligence sources were cited by the magazine as saying the Iran's Revolutionary Guards developed a secret plan to cause an oil tanker to leak in the area of the Straits of Hormuz. The program has been given to the Islamic Republic's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, for approval.
