Canada has taken steps to ensure the safety of the Canadian embassy in Teheran after Iranian legislators called it a den of spies and demanded it be shut down. Canadian authorities are monitoring the situation closely and are prepared to take "additional steps if necessary" after hardliners accused Ottawa of plotting with the United States, Canadian Foreign Affairs spokesman Rodney Moore said Thursday. He would not elaborate on what steps have been taken so far. Moore said the allegations are "likely an attempt at retaliation" for Canada's role in sponsoring a UN committee resolution effectively condemning Iran's human-rights record.
