Iran expels 2 British diplomats over riots.

Iran has expelled two British diplomats from the country in protest to UK officials' 'interfering' remarks about post-election developments in Iran.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry said it ordered the second and third secretaries of the British embassy on Monday to leave Iran.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said on Tuesday that UK was expelling two Iranian diplomats in a tit-for-tat action.

Iran summoned the British ambassador to Tehran last week in protest to UK officials' remarks on Iran's post-election unrest, which has erupted since the re-election of incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the presidential vote last week.

Tehran condemned the British officials' remark as a clear interference in Iran's internal affairs, saying London is supporting 'illegal rallies' in the Iranian capital Tehran.

Iran has also condemned Britain's state-run BBC over dramatizing the situation in Iran by providing extensive coverage of the country's developments and provoking the post-election violence.

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband has rejected the claims, saying turning the dispute among Iranians about the election results into a battle between Iran and other countries -- the UK in particular - 'is without foundation'.
