The Wall Street Journal on 31st October reported that while Europeans have tried to salvage the Iran nuclear deal, an alleged plan to launch an attack near Paris is jeopardising their support. France has expelled an Iranian diplomat over a bomb plot against a rally organised by Iranian opposition groups, diplomatic and security sources said. Reuters has reported that a source, speaking after the government announced asset freezes, said that the Iranian deputy minister and director general of intelligence, Saeid Hashemi Moghadam, had ordered the attack and Assadollah Asadi, a Vienna-based diplomat held by German authorities, had put it into action. Meanwhile, Denmark has accused Iran’s intelligence agencies of planning to assassinate an Iranian activist on Danish soil. The target was believed to be a member of an Arab separatist movement, Denmark’s intelligence service said. A massive police operation in Denmark last month linked to the case led to the bridge to Sweden being closed.
