London (dpa) - After the temporary arrest of the British ambassador in Tehran, the United Kingdom reacted with outrage. "The unfounded and unsubstantiated arrest of our ambassador in Tehran is an outrageous violation of international law," said Foreign Minister Dominic Raab. Ambassador Rob Macaire was arrested for a few hours, then released, according to the Tasnim news agency. Macaire had participated in a rally in front of the Amir Kabir University regarding the shooting down of a Ukrainian passenger plane by Iran.
