Pahlavi, half-brother of the late Shah of Iran, died of a heart attack while serving a life sentence in Tehran, Iran, a newspaper said Tuesday. He was in his mid-50s. A black sheep in the royal family and a heavy opium smoker, Pahlavi was virtually cast out of the court before the Islamic revolution that over threw Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in 1979. He was arrested shortly afterward on drug charges and received a life sentence that he served in Tehran's Evin prison.

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran on Saturday denounced as "unacceptable" recent comments by French President Jacques Chirac that France could respond with nuclear weapons against any state-sponsored terrorist attack. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said Chirac's threats Thursday reflect the true intentions of nuclear powers, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi confirmed, however, that Iran would offer a "multifaceted response" Tuesday to a package of incentives aimed at persuading Tehran to suspend enrichment.

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran said Sunday that environmental samples taken from a military complex during the weekend by U.N. nuclear inspectors will prove that the country's atomic program is for peaceful purposes and not making weapons, as the United States says. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency took samples from landscaped areas of the huge Parchin complex, which Washington thinks may be involved in nuclear-weapons research.

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran said Sunday that some al-Qaeda operatives blamed for the Sept. 11 attacks may have illegally passed through Iran from Afghanistan months before striking in America but dismissed as "fabrications" U.S. reports that Tehran may have facilitated the 2001 attacks. "It's normal that five or six people may have crossed the border within a couple of months without our knowledge. Our borders are long, and it's not possible to fully control them," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told reporters.

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran has provided to the U.N. Security Council the names of 225 suspected al-Qaeda operatives it detained and returned to their countries, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said Sunday. Asefi said Iran gave the names to the council last month. He said Iran also informed the United Nations of 2,300 people who sneaked across the border from Pakistan between October 2002 and July 2003 and were deported back to Pakistan.

TEHRAN, Iran - Iran said Monday that it would not accept meddling by France or other Western countries in the case of Iranian Jews arrested for allegedly spying for Israel. ``The concerns of certain countries on this issue are irrelevant. Iran rejects remarks by the foreign minister of France in this regard,'' Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said. French Foreign Minister Hubert Vedrine said Sunday the arrest of the Jews, made several months ago, was intolerable and that he had summoned Iran's ambassador to express France's anger.

TEHRAN, Iran -- In a reversal, Iran left open the possibility Thursday that it may have top al-Qaeda operatives in custody, including the terror-network security chief suspected by U.S. officials of planning attacks in Saudi Arabia. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi's comments to The Associated Press contradicted his statement Monday, when he told state-run radio that al-Qaeda members detained in Iran "are not senior members of the group." Instead, he said Thursday, Iran is unsure of the identities of the al-Qaeda members it has detained, and Saif al-Adil may be among them.
