Iranian militia at British embassy in Tehran demands closure of diplomatic mission

In Tehran, a massive demonstration of the Iranian Basij militia is taking place at the British Embassy, reports Asharq Al-Awsat.

Participants in the event demand that London stop interfering in Iran’s internal affairs.

Earlier in Tehran, at an opposition rally, British Ambassador Robert McAir was detained, who allegedly tried to lead the actions of protesters. The diplomat himself said that he just wanted to pay tribute to the victims of the downed Iranian Ukrainian Boeing.
