Iran replacing envoys who backed “rioters”: report

Iran is replacing 40 of its ambassadors, including some who voiced support for “rioters” during the unrest that erupted after June’s disputed presidential election, a semi-official news agency reported.

Citing informed sources, Fars News Agency said late on Tuesday that the envoys were given notification that their diplomatic postings had been terminated.

It did not give details on which ambassadors were affected and government officials were not immediately available for comment on the report, which also suggested that other Iranian embassies were in need of new personnel.

“Some of these people officially took positions during the recent riots in Iran in support of rioters,” Fars said.
