France has expelled an Iranian diplomat in response to a failed plot to carry out a bomb attack at a rally near Paris organized by an exiled Iranian opposition group, diplomatic and security sources say.One Iranian official, who declined to be identified, denied there had been any expulsion.The initial move by France to impose an asset freeze was deemed relatively symbolic since neither diplomat targeted was based in France or had assets in the country.Paris has suspended appointing a new ambassador to Iran and has not responded to Tehran's nomination of a new envoy in France, underscoring how sensitive the issue is.No appointments are expected until France receives more detailed information on who was behind the bombing attempt, two senior French diplomats said.
