Iran is 'not acting like a responsible government'

UK Foreign Secretary, William Hague has ordered the expulsion of Iranian diplomats after protesters stormed the British embassy in the Iranian capital, Tehran on Tuesday.

The protests were over EU sanctions against Iran because of fears the country is developing nuclear weapons.

Iranian writer and journalist Amir Taheri told Radio 5 live Breakfast what message the shutting of the embassy would send out.
