EU Warns Iran

Ian Black writes:

Iran was warned of a "strong and collective" EU response to the arrest of local staff working at Britain's embassy in Tehran, which was also condemned by the foreign secretary in the latest spat over post-election unrest.

David Miliband denied allegations that Iranian employees of the embassy had played a "significant role" in clashes between security forces and demonstrators complaining about the "theft" of the presidential poll.

"We have protested in strong terms, directly to the Iranian authorities, about the arrests," Miliband said. "The idea that the British embassy is somehow behind the demonstrations and protests that have been taking place in Tehran … is wholly without foundation."
