Iran on Sunday summoned U.K. Ambassador in Tehran Rob Macaire over his “illegal and inappropriate presence” near an anti-government protest, Iran’s Foreign Ministry said on Sunday.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry also handed an official protest note to the ambassador, the ministry said in a statement.
On Saturday, Macaire was detained during the protest outside Amirkabir University in the capital Tehran, but was released after an-hour-long detention.
