Iran: Protesters attack second Iranian consulate
Protesters attacked the Iranian consulate in the southern Iraqi city of Najaf on 28 November, in what is at least the third major incident involving diplomatic premises in Iraq this year – it follows the storming of the Bahrain embassy in Baghdad in June and a less serious incident at the Iranian consulate in Karbala in early November. Iraq’s foreign minister Mohamad Al-Hakim spoke to his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif on the phone the same day to apologise for the incident.
