Iran: Diplomat extradited to Belgium over Paris bomb plot
Germany extradited Iranian diplomat Asadollah Assadi to Belgium on 9 October, to face questioning about an alleged Iranian plot to bomb a rally by opposition group the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) near Paris on 30 June. NCRI is deemed a terrorist organisation by Tehran and is closely linked to the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) dissident group led by Maryam Rajavi, which advocates the violent overthrow of the Islamic Republic.
