      Iran's FM Condemned for Honoring Dead Hezbollah Terrorist


      The United States on Tuesday hit out at Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif after he lay a wreath at the tomb of Hezbollah terrorist Imad Mughniyeh during his visit to Beirut.

      “The United States condemns the decision taken by Zarif ... to place a wreath at the grave of Imad Mughniyeh, a former leader of Lebanese Hezbollah responsible for heinous acts of terrorism that killed hundreds of innocent people, including Americans,” U.S. National Security Council Spokesperson Caitlin Hayden said in a statement quoted by the Lebanese Naharnet website.
