U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron described Tuesday's storming of the British embassy in Iran as "outrageous and indefensible" and warned of serious consequences, adding that Iran must immediately ensure the safety of Britain's embassy staff.

AP - U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron says Iran’s failure to defend the British embassy from an attack in Tehran was a disgrace that will have serious consequences.

Cameron called the storming of the embassy in Tehran on Tuesday “outrageous and indefensible.”

The prime minister said all embassy staff have been accounted for and praised Britain’s ambassador to Iran for handling a “dangerous situation with calm and professionalism.”

Cameron said the Iranian government will face “serious consequences” for “its unacceptable failure” to protect diplomats in line with international law.

He said those measures will be considered in the coming days, adding that Iran’s government must immediately secure Britain’s compound and ensure the safety of its embassy staff.
