Documents show tense al Qaeda-Iran relationship | Reuters

(Reuters) – Al Qaeda’s relationship with Iran’s government has been fractious at best and openly antagonistic at worst, according to documents confiscated from Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Pakistan and made public on Thursday.

In the years since the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, high-ranking al Qaeda leaders, lower level militants and members of bin Laden’s family were held in custody by Iranian authorities, though U.S. officials say precise conditions of their confinement are unclear.
