An Iranian diplomat has been arrested along with two people as prime suspects of an attempted bomb attack at a meeting of exiled Iranian opposition groups in France which was attended by former Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Rudy Giuliani.

Iran’s foreign minister called the news a sinister “false flag ploy” and said Tehran was ready to work with all concerned parties to get to the bottom of it.

According to a joint statement by the Belgian prosecutor and the intelligence services two suspects in Belgium were intercepted by Belgian police on Saturday, with 500 grams of a home-made explosive produced from easily available chemicals, as well as a detonation device found in their car.

The statement also said that two suspects a 38-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, identified only as Amir S. and Nasimeh N., were charged with attempted terrorist murder and preparation of a terrorist act.
