DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Iran’s Foreign Ministry says it has summoned Britain’s ambassador to protest what it described as a hostile atmosphere created by London-based Farsi language media outlets. The move announced Sunday comes amid violent unrest in Iran triggered by the death of a young woman in police custody. The state-run IRNA news agency reported the ministry also summoned Norway’s ambassador to Iran and strongly protested recent remarks by the president of the Norwegian parliament. The death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in custody after being detained by Iranian morality police set off unrest across Iran’s provinces and the capital of Tehran that has killed at least 11.
