TEHRAN, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Shots were fired opposite the main gate of the residential compound of the British Embassy in Iran, but nobody was hurt, a British diplomat said on Monday.
Britain protested "strongly" to Iran last week after the second of two drive-by shootings around the British embassy in Tehran in under a week.

European's feet-dragging may ultimately dig their graves. And ours too.
