BERN, Switzerland (AP) — Police in the Swiss capital Bern have arrested two young men for throwing incendiary devices and stones at Iran's embassy.
A police statement says the attack happened shortly after 3 p.m. (1400 GMT) Wednesday and the embassy suffered no damage.
The unidentified men were detained by security guards and police and their motives are being investigated.
Switzerland has traditionally played the role of neutral mediator between Iran and western countries such as the United States.
Britain on Wednesday ordered Iran to remove all its diplomats from the U.K. within 48 hours following attacks on its embassy and a residential compound in Tehran.
