Swedish Police Say 5 People Illegally Entered Iran Embassy Site in Stockholm

STOCKHOLM — Five people on Tuesday illegally entered the premises of Iran’s embassy on the outskirts of Stockholm during a protest, Swedish police said in a statement. 

The people were later removed from the area. It was not immediately clear whether any of the five had entered the embassy building itself, a police spokesperson told news agency TT. 

Stockholm and Tehran are involved in a growing diplomatic row over several Swedish citizens held in custody in Iran. 

Iran has meanwhile accused a Swedish court of unjustly sentencing a former Iranian official to life in prison over a mass execution of political prisoners in the 1980s.
