British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Thursday that an alleged Iranian-backed plot to kill the Saudi envoy to the United States is a "major escalation in Iran's sponsorship of terrorism."

Hague said London was in "close touch" with US authorities and would work to agree an international response along with the United States, European Union and Saudi Arabia to the US charges, which Tehran denies.
