The Name's Squirrel, James Squirrel

Iranian Police Smash Squirrel Spy Ring |Sky News|World News: "Police in Iran are reported to have taken 14 squirrels into custody - because they are suspected of spying.

The rodents were found near the Iranian border allegedly equipped with eavesdropping devices.

The reports have come from the official Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

When asked about the confiscation of the spy squirrels, the national police chief said: 'I have heard about it, but I do not have precise information.'

The IRNA said that the squirrels were kitted out by foreign intelligence services - but they were captured two weeks ago by police officers."

Maybe the Iranians should watch out for Moles who sound like Peter Lorre too.
