UNITED NATIONS June 29, 2004 — The U.S. government has expelled two Iranian security guards working at Iran’s U.N. mission, citing activities “incompatible with their stated duties” diplomatic language for spying.
The guards were taking photos of infrastructure, modes of transportation and New York City landmarks, a U.S. official said Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity. They were the third set of Iranian guards caught taking pictures.
If anything happens in New York, we’ll know who to look at.
