UK to reopen embassy in Iran

The UK is set to this weekend reopen its embassy in Iran, which was closed nearly four years ago after it was stormed by protesters.

British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond is reportedly set to travel to Tehran for the event, according to a diplomatic source.

The reopening of the embassy comes four months after Iran reached a nuclear deal with the UK and 5 other world powers.
