The French authorities have frozen the assets of Iran's ministry of security and intelligence and two Iranian men, one of whom is accused of involvement in a bomb plot in June, according to AFP.

 

Police raided a Shia-Muslim organisation on Tuesday morning, apparently on the grounds that it supports the Iranian-backed groups, Hezbollah and Hamas

 

The decree announcing the asset freezes, published in the government gazette, identified one of the men as Assadollah Asadi, the same name as an Iranian diplomat who has been arrested over an alleged plot to bomb an Iranian opposition group in France this summer.

 

A German court on Monday ordered Asadi's extradition to Belgium, where he is accused of being the mastermind of the alleged plot the annual conference of the People's Mujahedin (MEK).

 

Israel's intelligence service, Mossad, gave Germany, France and Belgium crucial intelligence information about the alleged plot.

 

Another decree has frozen the assets of a Shia-Muslim group based in northern France for six months, along with those of three other organisations based at its offices.
