Iran's supreme leader is blaming the United States and Israel for recent suicide attacks in Iraq that have killed dozens of Iranian Shiite Muslim pilgrims. Iran's state TV on Saturday quoted a statement issued by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in which he said American and Israeli intelligence services are the No. 1 suspects behind the attacks. More than 150 people, many of them Iranian pilgrims, died in the attacks Thursday and Friday that were targeting Shiite worshipers in Iraq.
