Iranian police have released video of British ambassador Rob Macaire – shortly before he was arrested in Tehran on Saturday.
The move comes as Iran’s ambassador to the UK is summoned to the Foreign Office following the “unacceptable” treatment of Rob Macaire.
Mr Macaire, who was later released, said he had gone to a vigil for the people who died when Iran shot down a Ukrainian airliner, and left when some chanting began.
He tweeted that he was detained “half an hour after leaving the area”, adding that “arresting diplomats is of course illegal, in all countries”.
The Iranian foreign ministry said he was summoned to explain his “illegal and inappropriate presence” at an anti-government protest.
