US fears more plots from Iran's Quds Force

October 20, 2011 07:31

WASHINGTON - The United States believes Iran's shadowy Quds Force is becoming increasingly aggressive overseas and may be working on other international plots beyond the alleged plan to kill Saudi Arabia's ambassador to Washington, three US officials told Reuters.

US allegations last week of a foiled plot in Washington have escalated tensions between the United States and Iran. "They're being more aggressive ... not only in Iraq but worldwide," one senior US official said in an interview. The official and others insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record and because of the sensitive nature of the matter.
