Iran claims to have foiled a plot linked to Israel to bomb crowded sites in Tehran on Election Day.

Iran's intelligence ministry also linked the plot to America and other "foreign enemies" of Iran, in a statement released Thursday, Reuters reported.

A report on Iran state television said the plot, which included planting bombs in at least two prominent mosques in the capital, was foiled on Election Day, June 12.
