NEW YORK, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau said he plans to act within a month against a large "mainstream" bank over illicit links with Iran, and signaled he is investigating Venezuelan banks over potential illegal ties to Iran, the Financial Times said on Wednesday.

In an interview with the newspaper, Morgenthau said he was following up a prosecution of Lloyds TSB (LLOY.L) over the illegal transfer of $300 million in Iranian cash with a case involving a larger sum.
