Iranian dissident 'suspected target for London hit'

A secret dispatch detailing the agent's activity in London says: "Nourizadeh met Sadeqinia on several occasions in London and Washington DC but became suspicious when Sadeqinia took large numbers of photos, including of Nourizadeh's vehicle.

"Sadeqinia was arrested in California on charges of soliciting murder after he attempted to hire a hitman to kill Iranian-American broadcaster Jamshid Sharmahd. Because his pattern of behaviour towards Nourizadeh was similar to his interactions with Sharmahd, FBI shared the threat information with UK authorities, who subsequently warned Nourizadeh."
