Iran asks BBC reporter to leave


Iranian authorities have asked the BBC’s correspondent in Tehran to leave the country within 24 hours.

The BBC said the office would remain open despite the departure of Jon Leyne, the broadcaster’s permanent correspondent there.

The request came a day after protests about the presidential election left at least 10 people dead in the capital.

Foreign media, including the BBC, are under severe restrictions, preventing reporters leaving their offices.
