LONDON - Britain said on Wednesday it had withdrawn some diplomatic staff from Tehran after protesters stormed and ransacked its embassy in the Iranian capital.

"The prime minister and foreign secretary have made clear that ensuring the safety of our staff and their families is our immediate priority," the UK Foreign Office said in a statement.

"In light of yesterday's events, and to ensure their ongoing safety, some staff are leaving Tehran."

Earlier, Western diplomatic sources in Tehran told Reuters that Britain had evacuated all its diplomatic staff from Iran.
