BBC News: UK to expel all Iranian diplomats over embassy attack
The UK is to expel all Iranian diplomats following the storming of its embassy in Tehran, Foreign Secretary William Hague has announced.

...Tuesday's attack by hundreds of protesters followed Britain's decision to impose further sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme.

Iran's parliament had previously voted to reduce diplomatic ties with the UK....

However, Mr Hague said the UK was not severing relations with Iran entirely.

of breaking off diplomatic relations though.

Be a real hoot if all countries other than Russia and China bailed out leaving only their embassies to be used as consulates.
