British Prime Minister Tony Blair has issued a warning to Iran, saying "information" linked it to recent bomb attacks on British troops in Iraq. He said evidence led either to Iran or its Lebanese militant allies Hezbollah, although "we can't be sure of this". He warned Iran that there could be "no justification" for interfering in Iraq.
Speaking on Iranian TV, foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza-Asefi said: "This is a lie. The British are the cause of instability and crisis in Iraq."

He said Iran had no reason to interfere, as Mr Blair suggested, declaring that "a stable Iraq is in our interests".

The Tehran-backed Hezbollah meanwhile issued a statement denouncing Mr Blair's claims as "lies" and "excuses to justify the inability of the occupation to confront the rise of resistance inside Iraq".

Iraqi politicians have also expressed deep reservations about the British allegations, which have come amid increasingly tense relations between the UK and Iran over the apparent collapse of negotiations about Iran's nuclear programme.

It is only right to warn Iran over the attacks.
But NO action can be taken until everyone is 100% sure Iran played a part in the bombings!

I really hope they werent as we cant afford to be attacking Iran while we are still stuck in the mess that is the Iraq war!
