Tehran, Iran, Feb. 11 – Denmark’s foreign ministry announced on Saturday that the country’s ambassador to Iran has left Tehran after receiving credible threats on his life as the row continues over the publication of cartoons of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad in a Copenhagen daily.

The Danish embassy in Tehran had been attacked by hard-line radicals affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards several times earlier this week and its entire staff were forced to evacuate the site.

Parts of the embassy were set on fire as protestors hurled hand grenades and Molotov cocktails at the site and chanted “Death to Denmark”, “Death to America”, and demanded the closure of the embassy.

The Danish Foreign Ministry announced on Saturday that Denmark’s ambassador to Tehran along with the remaining Danish diplomats, had left, fearing “real dangers”.

Copenhagen announced that the Finnish embassy in Tehran would be in charge of Danish interests in Iran until further notice.
