Gholam Shakuri has been traveling to different countries under the names of Ali Shakuri/Gholam Shakuri/Gholam-Hussein Shakuri by using fake passports including forged Iranian passports,” the report said.

The US Justice Department has accused Shakuri and Mansour J. Arbabsiar, a naturalized Iranian-American citizen, of conspiring to hire assassins from a Mexican drug gang for $1.5 million to kill Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States.
