FAST FIVE: Iran Suspects Exiled Cult Was Involved In Assassination Of Top Scientist
On Monday, a senior Iranian official said a controversial group of Iranian exiles based in Albania could have been involved in the assassination.
“We have some clues but surely the 'Monafeghin' group was involved and the criminal element behind it is the Zionist regime and Mossad,” Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, told state TV.
Later that year, in September 2012, then-Secretary of State Hilary Clinton ordered the MEK to be removed from the US terror list after giving heaps of money to US officials.
From the base, the MEK staged terrorist attacks inside Iran and sided with Hussein in the brutal eight-year Iran-Iraq war.
US officials are paid well for attending MEK events.
