LONDON -- Britain's Foreign Secretary says the U.K. has withdrawn its entire diplomatic staff from Iran following attacks on the country's embassy and a residential compound in Tehran.
William Hague told the House of Commons on Wednesday that Britain had also ordered all Iranian diplomats to leave the U.K.
Mobs hauled down British flags and ransacked offices in Tehran on Tuesday in retaliation for Britain's support of tighter sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.
Hague said Britain and allies would consider other measures in response at a European Union meeting Thursday.
He said it was "fanciful" to believe the attacks did not take place with support from Iran's regime.
