After Tuesday’s storming of the British embassy in Tehran by young militants, European countries are mulling whether to pull their diplomats out of Iran. Britain has already ordered its staff to leave. The staff complied, but not before one special rescue mission: retrieving the British ambassador’s dog.
The Post’s Thomas Erdbrink reports that a European diplomat returned to the ransacked grounds to search for the dog. The pooch was found alive, but the damage to the buildings was extreme. “The place had been systematically ransacked, paintings were destroyed and furniture was broken,” the diplomat said. “We have concluded that the attack had been extremely well coordinated by the authorities.”
Around 300 protesters broke into the building, tore down paintings and set the British flag on fire.
