A European security analyst told British lawmakers Tuesday that he believes Iran may be attempting to draw up plans to strike targets in Europe and has conducted reconnaissance of European nuclear power stations. Claude Moniquet, president of the European Strategic Intelligence and Security Center, a private think-tank in Brussels, told a meeting of lawmakers and analysts in London's House of Commons that his organization also had evidence Tehran has increased numbers of intelligence agents across Europe.
