Iran has arrested a terrorist group that planned to blow up the Russian consulate building in the town of Rasht near the Caspian Sea, the Iranian intelligence and security minister said on Wednesday.
"This terrorist network, with links to the U.S., planned an explosion at the Russian consulate in Rasht, aiming to create a rift between Iran and its neighbors," Qolam Hosein Mohseni-Ejei was quoted by Fars news agency as saying.
The minister, speaking at a session of Iranian prosecutors, did not provide any details of the operation.
Moscow and Tehran enjoy warm relations amid the pressure from the West on Iran over its controversial nuclear program. Russia is a key economic partner of Iran, and is building the country's first nuclear power plant in Bushehr.

wonder what the supposed connection was to the US? Too bad they don't mention that. Without solid info on that piece of information this is just BS.

You are only supporting my point, what happens if we kill their people in Iran?
According to the minister, the network is linked to a blast in a mosque in the city of Shiraz in April. That explosion killed 14 and injured more than 200 people.
The group was allegedly planning a series of terrorist attacks in religious centres, thus aiming to incite religious hatred.
If you believe this obvious propaganda from the enemy then I have a bridge in New York I wan to sell you.

Took the words out of my mouth - the hypocrisy displayed is stunning:
"When we do it, it's fighting for freedom - when anyone else does it, it's terrorism"
