Reports say four Iranian nationals have been charged with plotting to kidnap a New York based journalist, the US Department of Justice says.
The Indictment did not name the target but Masih Alinejad, an Iranian born author, says it was her.
The conspirators, described as Intelligence Officials, also allegedly plotted to lure a person in the UK and three others in Canada to Iran.
All of the targets had been critical of Iran, says the Manhattan Indictment.
