BRUSSELS (Dispatches) -- An Iranian diplomat has been extradited to Belgium from Germany over "false” allegations that he plotted to bomb plot a rally by MKO terrorists in France, prosecutors said Tuesday.
The Vienna-based Iranian, who has previously been identified as Assadollah Assadi, was handed over and will appear before the Belgian judge in charge of the case Wednesday, the Federal Prosecutor's Office told AFP. Iran last week staunchly denied French accusations that one of its diplomats was involved in the alleged plot just ahead of a visit to Europe by President Hassan Rouhani.
