The Justice Department has said four Iranian nationals have been charged with plotting to abduct a journalist in New York and smuggle her out of US to Iran. The Iranian nationals plotted to kidnap US-based journalist and activist Masih Alinejad, an outspoken critic of the Tehran government. "I am grateful to the FBI for foiling the Islamic Republic of Iran's Intelligence Ministry's plot to kidnap me," Alinejad said on Twitter.
