Armed Diplomat at Iranian Embassy

An Iranian diplomat walked into his country’s embassy here in Stockholm Saturday and threatened his colleagues with a gun.

The Swedish police say no shots were fired in the incident and no one was injured. The embassy alerted the police, who later found the man at his home. They were unable to intervene because of his diplomatic immunity, but did help the embassy staff get him to a hospital.

The man has worked at the embassy since 2003, but according to the Swedish Foreign Ministry his position is being terminated.
