The reputable and freely-elected government of Iran apparently called in the Austrian ambassador to complain about reports from Austria that the president-elect, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, may have been involved in the 1989 murder of three Kurds in Austria.  From Die Presse:

[Green Party MP Peter Pilz] apparently passed on a statement from an Iranian exile in France, with whom he has contact, to the [Austrian anti-terrorism office], Pilz said at a Tuesday press conference. According to this witness, Ahmadinejad belonged to an operations commando that carried out the assassinations.
