KUWAIT/TEHRAN - Iran has expelled three Kuwaiti diplomats in a tit-for-tat move after the Gulf emirate said it would throw out three Iranian diplomats in a row over spy allegations, a Kuwaiti official said on Sunday.

"Iran has expelled three Kuwaiti diplomats, and they were given 10 days to leave," Khaled al-Jarallah, the undersecretary of Kuwait's Foreign Ministry told Reuters on Sunday.

The move comes after Kuwait expelled three Iranian diplomats this month, Jarallah said.
