Washington DC - United States accuses Iran of trying to kill the Ambassador of Saudi Arabia in Washington DC, Adel al-Jubeir. The charges were filed after the U.S. claimed to have foiled a plan the assassination of al-Jubeir by two people associated with the Iranian security agencies.

According to Reuters news agency, filed charges U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, on Tuesday. Holder stated that the assassination attempt was designed by Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps through the unit in particular, Al-Quds. One person had been arrested last September and only managed to escape to Iran.

"The officials at the agencies [Iran], which is an integral part of the Iranian government, responsible for this plan," Holder told reporters. "I think it was horrible linked Iranian government's efforts in this country," said Holder.

President Barack Obama called the conspiracy as a violation of U.S. and international law, while Saudi Arabia consider it a despicable act. According to the Director of the U.S. Federal Investigation Agency (FBI), Robert Mueller, the plan was no different from a Hollywood screenplay for the Saudi ambassador to be killed by a bomb in a restaurant in Washington DC, which is supported by a grant from Mexico's drug dealing and some international calls .

 However, Holder and Mueller did not explain in detail how they know the plan and how well one of the perpetrators could be arrested. Meanwhile, Iran has denied U.S. allegations. The case became even more exacerbated tensions between Iran and the United States and its allies, Saudi Arabia. The U.S. and Iran has decades of political conflict, while Saudi Arabia and Iran has long been at loggerheads.
