STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) – An Iranian diplomat walked into Iran’s embassy in Stockholm on Saturday and threatened his colleagues with a gun, but no shots were fired in the incident, police said.

The diplomat, who was not identified but is employed at the embassy, then left in a car but was later found by police near his house in the Stockholm suburb of Lidingo, police spokeswoman Eva Nilsson said.

The man has diplomatic immunity and cannot be arrested or interrogated by police unless his diplomat status is revoked, she said. Instead, he was taken to a hospital because “he was not feeling too well,” Nilsson said.

It was unclear what prompted the incident, which happened shortly after 1 p.m. (1100GMT), or how many employees were in the embassy at the time, she said.

Embassy officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
