The execution of British-Iranian man Alireza Akbari, who had been sentenced to death, has been widely condemned.
The ex-deputy Iranian defence minister was arrested in 2019 and convicted of spying for the UK, which he denied.
UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said his execution was a “callous and cowardly act, carried out by a barbaric regime”.
France summoned Iran’s top diplomat in Paris, warning that Tehran’s repeated violations of international law could not go unanswered.
Meanwhile, the UK has imposed sanctions on Iran’s Prosecutor General, saying it would hold the regime to account “for its appalling human rights violations”.
“Sanctioning him today underlines our disgust at Alireza Akbari’s execution,” UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said.
