Diplomat Attacks: Iran Denies Role In Bomb Attacks Against Israeli Diplomats In India, Georgia

TEHRAN, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Iran rejects as "sheer lies" accusations that it was involved in a bomb attack on the Israeli embassy in India, the official IRNA news agency quoted the Islamic Republic's ambassador to New Delhi as saying on Monday.

"Any terrorist attack is condemned (by Iran) and we strongly reject the untrue comments by an Israeli official," Mehdi Nabizadeh was quoted as saying by IRNA. "These accusations are untrue and sheer lies, like previous times."

Bombers targeted staff at Israel's embassies in India and Georgia on Monday, wounding four people, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused arch-enemies Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of involvement. (Writing by Zahra Hosseinian; Editing by Mark Heinrich)
