US Republican Santorum says radical Iran, Iraq Muslims in 'death cult'

WASHINGTON - US Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said on Wednesday that radical Shi'ite Muslims in Iran and Iraq believe in an "apocalyptic version" of Islam that he called a "death cult."
Santorum, a former US senator from Pennsylvania whose popularity among Republicans hovers in the low single digits, made the comments during a televised debate while assailing the international deal to curb Iran's nuclear program.
Santorum said more than two-thirds of Iranian and Iraqi Shi'ite Muslims "believe that the end of the world is going to come within their lifetime" because "their regime preaches it."
