Iran summons Azeri envoy over Mossad allegations

Tehran: Iran`s state-run news agency says the
country`s foreign ministry has summoned Azerbaijan`s
ambassador to protest alleged Israeli intelligence activity in
the oil-rich Caucasian state.

The Sunday report by IRNA says that the ministry handed a
protest note to Azeri envoy Javanshir Akhundov and demanded
that his government prevent Mossad from using its territory to
launch operations against Iran.

The report said "terrorists" linked to the killings of
Iranian nuclear scientists escaped to Israel through
Azerbaijan.

Iran has frequently accused Israel of having a hand in
the assassination of scientists such as Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan,
killed by a bomb in January.

Israel has hinted at covert campaigns against Iran
without directly admitting involvement.
