Iran expels four Azeri diplomats amid ongoing tensions


TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian media say the country has expelled four diplomats from neighboring Azerbaijan amid ongoing tensions between two nations. Friday’s report on Iranian semiofficial news outlets did not provide further details but said the four Azeri diplomats had been working in Azerbaijan’s Embassy in Tehran and its consulate in the northwestern city of Tabriz. Last month, Azerbaijan expelled four Iranian diplomats from its capital, Baku. Relations between Tehran and Baku soured after a gunman in January stormed the Azerbaijan Embassy in Iran’s capital, killing its security chief and wounding two guards.
