Iran protests over US ‘spy networks’

June 10, 2007

TEHRAN, June 9: Iran has handed an official protest to the United Nations accusing the United States of supporting a militant group and creating spy networks inside the country, media reported on Saturday.

The protest, addressed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, accuses the United States of supporting Jundallah, an outlawed armed group blamed for deadly attacks in Iran's southeastern Sistan-Baluchestan province.

It also said the United States was “organising spy networks against our country” aimed at carrying out sabotage in sensitive regions to destabilise the Islamic republic.
