Politics | October 28, 2006, Saturday // 00:00

An Iranian government official accused the US of staging the attacks of September 11, 2001, claiming the New York's World Trade Centre was actually blown up by bombs, not by terrorists' hijacked planes.

"What we watched on the TVs regarding the slamming of two planes into the New York Twin Towers, was in fact a make-believe scene," Deputy Culture Minister Mohammad-Hadi Homayoun was quoted by state news agency IRNA.

He spoke in an address to the Iran-Russia Dialogue among Civilizations Conference in Moscow.

"The sky-scrapers were destroyed through bomb explosions and afterwards the massive US media propaganda and the crusade issue began", the minister said referring to US President George W Bush's controversial remarks that outlined a "crusade" against terrorism following the 9/11 attacks.
