Azerbaijan on Friday said it was evacuating staff from its embassy in Tehran, blaming Iran for an armed attack in which the head of security was killed and two guards wounded.

"All responsibility for the attack lies with Iran," foreign ministry spokesman Ayxan Hacizada told local media, saying a recent anti-Azerbaijani campaign in Iranian media had "encouraged the attack."

He later told Turkish TRT Haber TV station that the embassy staff "are being evacuated from Iran."
