Iran media says foreign diplomats arrested

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards arrested several foreign diplomats including a Briton, accusing them of “spying”, the Fars news agency and state television said Wednesday.

But the British government quickly denied that any of its personnel had been arrested, describing the reports as “completely false”.

The developments coincide with heightening tensions between Tehran and world powers over long-stalled attempts to revive a 2015 nuclear deal and a recent uptick in confirmed detentions of Western nationals in the country.
