The US State Department denies reports that group of Iranians arrested in Tehran on charges of planning a coup have links to Washington.

“Any charge against an Iranian that he or she is working with the United States to overthrow the Iranian government is baseless,” the US State Department said in a Tuesday statement.

“In the past, Iran has used similar charges to falsely accuse and detain civil society activists and Iranians working to enhance understanding between our two countries,” the statement added.
