LONDON - Britain, which closed its embassy in Tehran last month after it was ransacked by protesters, said on Thursday that Iranian authorities had blocked its website aimed at Iran.

The move creates further tension between the two countries that regularly clash over Iran's nuclear program.

Britain's Foreign Office said Iranian authorities had barred access to a Foreign Office website, "UK in Iran" http://ukiniran.fco.gov.uk/en/, that carries information on British government policies and statements, including criticism of Iran's human rights record.

It said the website had been added to thousands of other Internet sites censored by Iranian authorities.
