Iran lifted a five-day blockade of the French Embassy in Tehran, but French police maintained their vigil at the Iranian Embassy in Paris, Iran’s Foreign Ministry said. Iranian security forces blockaded the mission, trapping 28 staff members inside, after French police surrounded Iran’s Paris embassy during a terrorism investigation. French police want to question an embassy employee, Vahid Gordji, in connection with last year’s bomb attacks in Paris that killed 11 people and injured 162. Iran warned France that unpredictable consequences could result if Gordji, listed as an interpreter at the embassy, were forced to undergo questioning.
