LONDON (Reuters) – All Iranian diplomats left Britain Friday after being expelled in protest at the storming by protesters of the British embassy in Tehran, a government spokesman said.

“I can confirm that, earlier this afternoon, all diplomatic staff of the Iranian Embassy in London took off from Heathrow airport. They are returning to Iran in line with the Foreign Secretary’s (William Hague) statement to parliament on Wednesday,” a Foreign Office spokesman said.
