The White House says President Barack Obama and Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah (ab-DUHL'-uh) have discussed a foiled plot allegedly masterminded by Iran to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington.
Both leaders committed to pursuing a strong, unified international response to hold the alleged plotters responsible.
Two men, including a member of Iran's Quds (kuhdz) Force special foreign actions unit, were charged in federal court in New York this week with conspiring to kill the Saudi diplomat, Adel Al-Jubeir.
Justice Department officials say the men tried to hire a purported member of a Mexican drug cartel to carry out the assassination with a bomb attack while Al-Jubeir dined at his favorite restaurant.
