Iran detains 2 Europeans; EU envoy in Tehran about nuke deal

Shortly before the European Union envoy met Iran‘s nuclear negotiator in Tehran on Wednesday in a last-ditch attempt to salvage Iran‘s nuclear deal with world powers, Iran‘s Intelligence Ministry announced it had detained two Europeans.

The Intelligence Ministry gave scant details about the detained Europeans, saying only that they shared the same unidentified nationality and sought to “take advantage” of the protests springing up in several Iranian provinces as laborers and teachers press for better wages. The Europeans were held on vague charges of planning to cause “chaos, social disorder, and instability,” authorities said.
