Britain’s ambassador to Iran has been arrested during protests outside a university in the capital city Tehran over the Iran Plane Crush that killed 176 passengers.

Robert Macaire was detained for more than an hour before being released, the Iranian Tasnim news agency reported.

Foreign secretary Dominic Raab said: “The arrest of our ambassador in Tehran without grounds or explanation is a flagrant violation of international law.

“The Iranian government is at a crossroads moment. It can continue its march towards pariah status with all the political and economic isolation that entails, or take steps to de-escalate tensions and engage in a diplomatic path forwards.”

Macaire was said to have been one of a number of individuals held on suspicion of organising, provoking and directing radical actions.

It is understood that Macaire had been attending what had been billed as a vigil for the victims of the crash.

However the event quickly turned into a demonstration at which point Macaire left.

It was as he was returning to the British embassy that he was arrested – although it is not clear who he was held by.

Following a number of urgent calls to the Iranian ministry of foreign affairs he was eventually released and allowed to return to the embassy.

Tasnim news, which has close connections with Iran’s Islamic revolutionary guard corps (IRGC), tweeted on Saturday night: “British ambassador to Tehran has been detained for organizing suspicious movements and protests in front of Amir Kabir University but released after hours and will be summoned by foreign ministry tomorrow [Sunday] morning.”

Iran has witnessed anti-government protests, as protesters in Tehran on Saturday chanted slogans against the nation’s top authorities, after Iranian authorities admitted shooting down a passenger plane, killing all 176 aboard.

See The Most Hated States In America. Number 1 Is Not A Surprise

Can you guess what #1 is? Oh yes you can.
If your state ranks high on the list you have to move away immediately… just kidding this list doesn’t really mean anything, but it’s fun to look at.
How much do you love your home state?

How much do you hate other states? For majority of us, it’s something we probably don’t think about that often, but the folks at BestLife?

Well, they are on top of it, and they have crunched the numbers to come up with a ranking of the 50 U.S. states based on how much they are hated.

The “Hatred Index” that BestLife came up with is based on a number of factors, including surveys where residents expressed how much (or little) pride they had in their state, how many people are moving into or out of the state, and a poll where people picked which state they hate the most, whether it was their own home state or a different one.

Okay, so it is not the most scientific collection of metrics in the world, but it is something, and using all that data the website ranked all the states to determine which are the most hated and which are the least hated.

Let is begin with the positive side, because it’s been a rough year and we could all use a bit more positivity these days. Here are the least hated states, according to the data:

Idaho
Utah
Washington
Nevada
Arizona
Colorado
Oregon
South Dakota
Montana
Wyoming

Okay, so a lot of the states with lower population figures seem to be ranked pretty highly in terms of likeability.

That makes sense, more especially when you see that a lot of these states did not rank on the poll of which states other people hate the most.

I mean, what is there to hate about Wyoming? Big open spaces?

On the other hand, the most hated states tend to have higher populations, and people seem to have stronger opinions about them.

We have no other way of knowing why people seem to hate the following states so much, but sports teams, politics, and other factors likely play large factors.

Listed below are the most-hated states, according to the data:

New Jersey
Texas
California
Oklahoma
Florida
Michigan
Kentucky
Indiana
Alabama
Kansas

Okay so to the top spot being taken by New Jersey isn’t surprising in the least. I don’t say that because New Jersey is a state that I hate — I don’t really have an opinion of it one way or another if I’m being honest — but New Jersey tends to be the butt of many jokes, and it’s probably a fallback for a lot of people who couldn’t think of an answer that meant anything to them personally.

You can check out the rest of the list to see where your state ranks if you don’t see it on either of these lists, but wherever your state ranks, don’t take it too rough.

Iraq Court Orders Trump’s Arrest Over Drone Strike On Iran General

A Baghdad court has issued a warrant for the arrest of US President Donald Trump as part of its investigation into the killing of a top Iraqi paramilitary commander.

Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy head of Iraq’s largely pro-Iran Hashed al-Shaabi paramilitary network, died in the same US drone strike that killed storied Iranian general Qasem Soleimani at Baghdad airport on January 3 last year.

The strike on their motorcade was ordered by Trump, who later crowed that it had taken out “two (men) for the price of one”.

The UN special rapporteur for extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Agnes Callamard, has described the twin killings as “arbitrary” and “illegal”.

Iran already issued a warrant for Trump’s arrest in June, and asked Interpol to relay it as a so-called red notice to other police forces around the world, a request that has so far gone unmet.

The court for east Baghdad issued the warrant for Trump’s arrest under Article 406 of the penal code, which provides for the death penalty in all cases of premeditated murder, the judiciary said.

The court said the preliminary inquiry had been completed but “investigations are continuing in order to unmask the other culprits in this crime, be they Iraqis or foreigners.”

In the run-up to Sunday’s anniversary of the twin killings, pro-Iran factions stepped up their rhetoric against Washington and Iraqi officials deemed to have colluded with it.
