Iran has foiled plot to use protests to overthrow system, says leader

Khamenei: US and Britain fail to cause Iran unrest

The United States has rejected Tehran's claims that Washington or US intelligence agencies have been behind the protests. Unlike the Obama administration, we refuse to turn our backs on the Iranian regime's destabilizing practices and disrespect for the human rights, civil liberties and free speech of its people.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday said the United States would "fail miserably" if it attempted to interfere in Iranian affairs.

The number of arrests cited by Mahmud Sadeghi on January 9 is far higher than figures announced by authorities.

On Dec. 28, people in the northeastern city of Mashhad took to the streets to express their anger at the government for failing to control the cost of living. Some demonstrators have called for the overthrow of Khamenei and the powerful conservative clerics who maintain Islamic rule. The scheme was formed by the US and Zionists.

"Once again, the nation tells the US, Britain, and those who seek to overthrow the Islamic Republic of Iran from overseas that "you've failed, and you will fail in the future, too".

Toyota revealed the e-Palette, an autonomous concept vehicle , at the Consumer Electronics Show ( CES ) in Las Vegas on Monday. The vehicle will have a low floor and an open interior design to allow customization according to the need of the hour.

At least 20 people, including civilians and policemen, were killed and dozens of others were injured during violent clashes between the protesters and security forces, according to unofficial reports.

Sadeghi, who said he was told the detainee, identified as Sina Ghanbari, committed suicide, has called for an investigation into the man's death.

Another man detained in Arak, 235 kilometers southwest of Tehran, also died, the center said.

In reference to recent protests across the country, Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized that all Iranian officials must pursue the demands of the people. He claimed the MKO had been "hired as minions for this plot". That a number of the people from this gathering misuse this motive to insult the Quran, insult Islam, insult the flag, burn the mosque, commit sabotage or set the country on fire is another thing. "Regarding the recent events, there have been various analyses", said Khamenei.
