AFP – Shots were fired at the British embassy in the Iranian capital Tehran, the British Foreign Office revealed. “Three to four shots were fired from the street at or close to the embassy building. No one was injured. We can’t speculate on who might be responsible,” a spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said Tuesday.
It is the second time in a week that the embassy has been targeted. In a similar incident on September 3, it also came under fire from gunmen.
After that attack, Britain’s Foreign Office authorised the voluntary departure of non-essential members of staff and dependants at the embassy, which was shut indefinitely.
