Austria Calls on Iran to Lift Immunity of Detained Diplomat




Austria asked Tehran Tuesday to lift the immunity of an Iranian diplomat suspected of involvement in an alleged plot to bomb a rally by an exiled Iranian opposition group in France.
The diplomat, who is based at the embassy in Vienna, was detained in Germany on Saturday.
Vienna delivered the request to "lift the immunity of the Iranian diplomat" to Iran's ambassador to Austria, who was summoned to the foreign ministry after news of the alleged plot emerged on Monday, a ministry spokesman said.
