Iranian President airs details of alleged plot

Iranian President Bani-Sadr, a moderate who believes in rapidly resolving the hostage question, allowed details to be released Wednesday of a purported coup being planned against him by Muslim fundamentalists. The President's newspaper, Islamic Revolution, released the transcript of a tape detailing the coup plot by the fundamentalists, who favor spy trials for the Americans. The paper said the tape was a conversation by Dr. Hassan Ayat, a member of the central group of the Islamic Republican Party, which controls parliament. Dr. Ayat, considered the most powerful fundamentalist leader after Ayatollah Muhammad Beheshti, described Mr. Bani-Sadr as an "American pawn."
