DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran has reopened its consulate in the Afghan city of Herat, a week after it was reported closed following anti-Iranian protests outside the compound, the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said. The demonstrators were protesting against the alleged killing of Afghan migrants by Iranian police, an assertion Tehran has denied. Iran’s state news agency IRNA reported on December 11 that Iran had shut the consulate. “Based on the request of Afghan officials and people, Iran’s consulate in Herat resumed its activities yesterday (Monday),” Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said. “The issue of the damage inflicted (on the consulate) is being pursued.”
