The offices of two scummy British corporations in Iran were targetted by a small exploision that failed to cause any significant damage.
The British embassy said the device detonated at about 9.50am on Tuesday on the 10th floor of the Sayeh Building in the downtown district of the Iranian capital.
No damage was caused by the exploding device that appeared similar to a concussion grenade, which produces only a loud noise and a shock wave on detonation.
