Iran's suspected connection to the Turkish IHH flotilla has been at risk of being revealed, the German daily Bild reported on Saturday, citing intelligence sources.

Following the Iranian government's concern over the revelation, three Iranian spies have reportedly been kept in house arrest after they falsified passports and travel documents for organizers of the IHH flotilla.

According to the Bild report, the spies' cover names are "The Broker," "Bit Taxim" and "Hot Chai" and they reportedly have been in contact with Al-Qaida and the Iranian Al-Quds Brigade.
