TEHRAN – Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused American and Israeli intelligence services of being behind the weekend’s attacks in Najaf and Karbala which left 66 dead, state television reported on Monday.

“I am certain that American and Israeli intelligence services are behind these events and that it is a plot aimed at distracting the Iraqis so that they miss the election.” Khamenei said.

The United States and Iraqi leaders have accused the regime in Iran of meddling in Iraq to ensure a supportive Shiite government after the January 30 elections.
