The FBI and the DEA have disrupted a plot involving Iran to kill the Saudi ambassador to the United States, according to the U.S. Justice Department. Two men – one arrested, the other at large – have been charged in connection with the plot, which the Justice Department says was directed by elements of the Iranian government.
The Justice Department says one of the men – a naturalized U.S. citizen holding an Iranian passport – arranged to hire someone in Mexico who he thought was an associate of a drug trafficking cartel. The person in Mexico actually was a DEA confidential source who was posing as a cartel associate, the Justice Department says.
