Iran's top leader accuses enemies of stirring unrest in country

Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Iran's "enemies" were orchestrating a plot to challenge the regime as he broke his silence Tuesday on the days of unrest rocking the country, and saying that "Enemies have stirred unrest in country, using cash, arms and intelligence agents."

Iran's Supreme Leader on Tuesday accused enemies of the Islamic Republic of stirring unrest, as anti-government demonstrations that began last week continued.

"In recent days, enemies of Iran used different tools including cash, weapons, politics and intelligence apparatus to create troubles for the Islamic Republic," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted as saying in a post on his official website.

Khamenei said he would address the nation about the recent events "when the time is right".
