Iran: Najaf consulate attack not deed of Iraqi protesters

The attack on the Iranian consulate in the Iraqi city of Najaf was most likely "organized" and not the work of anti-government protesters in Iraq, Iranian government spokesperson Ali Rabiei said on Wednesday.

He stated: "The attack on the Iranian consulate was not at the hands of the Iraqi people and government. We will also pursue who has masterminded this."

The Iranian consulate in Najaf was attacked three times over the past weeks as anti-government protests are taking place in across Iraq. The last attack took place on Tuesday.
