Iran says its diplomat in Frankfurt is target of smear campaign by media and opposition

Iran on Sunday said one of its diplomats was confronted by German police and is the target of a smear campaign orchestrated by an Iranian opposition group and German newspaper Bild.

State-run Press TV quoted Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hasan Qashqavi as saying that the mass-selling tabloid and the People’s Mujahideen, an opposition group outlawed in Iran, were behind a “fabricated scenario” to discredit the diplomat by accusing him of molesting a girl in Frankfurt.
