Masih Alinejad Lives in Brooklyn. Iran Wants To Kill Her. | GZERO World

Iranian journalist and activist Masih Alinejad has long been in Tehran's crosshairs, accused of being an agent of the United States.

She denies it. "I'm not an American agent. I have agency," Alinejad tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

But the regime has continued to look for ways to target her, even from her home in Brooklyn.


"In front of the eyes of free world, the Islamic Republic sent people here in New York to kill you, to assassinate you, to kidnap you. This is scary," she says. Alinejad has been living in safe houses, here in New York, for months.

"It seems that even America is not safe."
