U.S. grand jury indicts two men in Saudi envoy plot

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. grand jury decided on Thursday to formally charge two men suspected of being part of an alleged Iranian plot to kill the Saudi ambassador to Washington.

U.S. authorities announced last week they foiled a plot by two men linked to Iran's security agencies to assassinate Saudi Ambassador Adel al-Jubeir. One suspect was arrested in the United States last month and the other is believed to still be in Iran.
