France: Govt accuses Iran of violence at Tehran embassy

France has accused Iranian security services of committing “unacceptable acts of violence” on French diplomatic personnel in the Iranian capital.

The entry to the French embassy residence in Tehran was blocked by unidentified officials on Sunday, said the French foreign ministry.

“[They] proceeded to arrest guests of the French ambassador and carried out unacceptable acts of violence against French diplomatic personnel,” it said.

Iran has not commented on the claims.

Correspondents say the incident is the latest signal of ongoing tensions between France and Iran, partly strained by France’s tough stand on Iran’s nuclear program
