Iran accuses Clinton of spreading 'lies'

Iran's supreme leader accused US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday of spreading "lies" against Iran during her tour of Arab states in the Persian Gulf.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei claimed that the US seeks to frighten Arab states with the specter of Iran in order to sell them expensive weapons systems.
"Now, the Americans, once again, have dispatched their agent as a saleswoman to the Persian Gulf to spread lies," state TV quoted Khamenei as saying.
Khamenei didn't mention Clinton by name but he was referring to her tour of the region.
