Prosecutors: Gunman Prowled Near Home of Iranian Dissident | app

NEW YORK (AP) — Masih Alinejad, an Iranian opposition activist and writer in exile in New York, had previously been identified as the target of an alleged kidnapping plot. A year later, it seems the threats against her are still pouring in.

Federal prosecutors in New York charged a man last week with driving through Brooklyn’s Masih neighborhood over the weekend with a loaded assault rifle and dozens of rounds. Alinejad said on Monday that authorities told her the man was looking for her and that home security video caught him hiding outside her front door.
