A plot to assassinate Mahmoud Ahmadinejad earlier this month in Italy failed, an Iranian daily reported.
An adviser to the Iranian president told the Etemad-e Melli daily newspaper of a plot to assassinate Ahmadinejad during a three-day U.N. food crisis summit in Rome on June 3, according to Reuters.
The report published Tuesday comes just days after Ahmadinejad accused the United States of a plot to kill him during a march visit to Iraq. Iranian state radio said the president changed his schedule at the last minute to foil the plot.
