British Embassy Staff "Face Trial" in Iran

A top Iranian cleric said Friday some of the arrested employees from the British Embassy in Tehran would be put on trial, Iranian Students News Agency reported.

The employees have been accused of helping to incite some of the post-election protests that sweep through Iran.

The British Foreign Office in London reacted strongly to the statement Friday.

"We are very concerned by these reports and are investigating. Allegations that our staff were involved in fomenting unrest are wholly without foundation.
