BEIRUT - Syria denied on Thursday US allegations that Iran was helping it quell mass protests, after the United States said it believed it had evidence Tehran was helping Syrian authorities combat the unrest.

"There is no truth to the announcement by the US State Department about the presence of evidence of Iranian help to Syria in quelling the protests," state television quoted a Foreign Ministry official as saying.
