UK envoy to Tehran arrested for several hours for inciting anti-government protesters - Tasnim

Cairo (Reuters) - A British envoy to Tehran was arrested for several hours in front of Amir Kabir University for inciting anti-government protesters, the Tehran-based Tasnim news agency said on Saturday.

Iran has witnessed anti-government protests, as protesters in Tehran on Saturday chanted slogans against the nation’s top authorities, after the powerful Revolutionary Guards admitted shooting down a passenger plane, killing all 176 aboard.
