Protesters gathered outside the UK Embassy in Tehran on Sunday, where they condemned Ambassador Rob Macaire’s presence in the country and called for his expulsion, after he was accused of inciting protests and briefly arrested on Saturday when he attended a vigil for the victims of the Ukrainian plane crash.
The vigil Macaire attended turned into an anti-government protest as demonstrators grew angry over the government’s handling of the incident, although the diplomat had reportedly left the event by that point.
UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab called the arrest illegal saying Iran was risking to turn into a “pariah” state.
