Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdel Aziz mocked a report that appeared in the pro-government Iranian media and claimed Saudi Arabia was involved in the assassination of Hizbullah commander Emad Mughniya last February. Bin Abdel Aziz responded by saying "this is funny." The report first appeared in the Fars News Agency on April 8th then in Kahyan newspaper, according to the LA Times Blog Babylon & Beyond. Both reports appeared in Farsi, but the Italian AKI news service translated them and published a story about it.
