Press-TV, Iran's English-language state broadcaster, alleged that "hardline Wahabis and Salafis trained by the CIA in Pakistan" were behind the bombings. Iran has claimed Rigi confessed that the US had assured him of unlimited aid and funding for the waging an insurgency against the Islamic republic. The US is reported to have a programme of covert operations inside Iran but the CIA has denied backing Jundullah. But Alaeddin Borujerdi, chairman of Iran's parliamentary commission on national security, immediately pointed the finger at the intelligence services of the US, Israel and other western countries. "Such terror operations will not deter Iranian's resolve in fighting against arrogant powers," he told the Irna news agency. Iran was "the main victim" of US-sponsored terrorism, said Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, another MP.

That's strange, Iran usually accuses the US & Israel of these types of attacks, I wonder why the UK is being pointed at...

Every time I have seen a reference to the “great Satan” it’s been direct towards the USA, I know wiki say’s it can also be directed towards the UK but I was under the impression its always meant the USA. It might be being used in a winder term to describe the allies of the USA, the primary one being the UK. Every time i read the words Great Satan I take it to mean America and not the UK
. Little Satan is Israel.
