U.S. ponders how to pressure Iran

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration plans to force charges that Iran plotted to kill Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States into a new global campaign to isolate the Islamic republic.

U.S. weighs how to pressure Iran in wake of alleged plot

U.S. officials stated that the administration will lobby for the imposition of new international sanctions as well as for individual nations to increase their own penalties against Iran based on charges that Iranian agents tried to recruit a purported member of a Mexican drug cartel to kill the Saudi envoy on American soil.

The Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton stated in an associated press interview, "this really, in the minds of many diplomats and government officials, crosses a line that Iran needs to be held to account for”. She also said she and President Barack Obama want to "enlist more countries in working together against what is becoming a clearer and clearer threat" from Iran.
