US accused of helping to hijack Iranian boat

Iran accused the US Central Intelligence Agency of helping to hijack an Iranian torpedo boat. The 249-ton high-speed attack vessel was seized by anti-Khomeini commandos led by the late Shah's former Navy chief in a raid on a three-ship Iranian convoy in the Strait of Gibraltar, according to the paris-based exile group called the Movement of Iranian Liberation (Azadegan).
