Clinton confronts scepticism over Iran's alleged plot

The arrest of an Iranian-American charged over an alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the US has been met with scepticism by some.

Manssor Arbabsiar, 56, is accused of arranging a plan to kill Saudi envoy Adel Al-Jubeir in a bomb attack. The sceptics claim that the plot is too absurd to be plausible.
