Report: Two German diplomats detained in Iran
TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran's state radio says two German diplomats have been detained in connection with deadly protests in December.
The radio quoted Iran's deputy intelligence minister on Wednesday as accusing the German diplomats of being involved in organizing the riots but gives no further details.
The intelligence official alleged the protests had been "pre-planned" and that foreign powers had a role in provoking the riots.
It was not immediately clear when the Germans were detained. There was no immediate comment from Berlin.
At least eight people died in clashes between security forces and opposition supporters across Iran last month. It was the worst bloodshed since the height of the protests following the disputed re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last summer.
