MADRID  — Spain said Friday Iran has apologized for the detention of a Spanish diplomat during recent street protests in Tehran.

Foreign Minister Trinidad Jimenez said her Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi telephoned her Thursday night to say Iran was sorry for the incident and pledged it would not happen again.
