    BAGHDAD, Sept. 28 (Xinhuanet) -- Iraqi security forces have arrested a spy working for Iranian intelligence, local newspaper AlFurat reported Tuesday.

    The arrested Nashaat Abd Ali Al Husseiny is accused of spying for Iran, said a top Iraqi intelligence official who declined to give his name.

    Al Husseiny confessed serious things that would incriminate the Iranian intelligence and its interference in Iraq's internal affairs, said the source.

    The source added that an Iranian intelligence officer called Mohamed Qarbani, titled Abu Mohamed, who is working under diplomatic cover in the Iranian embassy in Baghdad, has recruited Al Husseiny.

    Al Husseiny revealed in the interrogation that the Iranian embassy in Baghdad is the headquarters of making sabotage and spying in Iraq, said the source.

    Iraqi government has been accusing Iran of interfering in its internal affairs and had sent an official delegation recently to inform Iran about such affairs, it was reported.

    Iraqi Defense Minister Hazim Al Shaalan also criticized Iran of standing behind the bombings and acts of sabotage in Iraq. Enditem
