British ambassador in Tehran Rob Macaire was arrested briefly last night in Iran. He was accused by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of inciting anti-government protesters. He was released after the Foreign Ministry intervened.
Following the brief detention of Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Iran Rob Macaire, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:
"The arrest of our Ambassador in Tehran without grounds or explanation is a flagrant violation of international law. The Iranian government is at a cross-roads moment.
