Iran signalled Monday it could expel Britain's ambassador in case of any further "interference" in its affairs after a row over a vigil he attended for those killed in last week's downing of a Ukrainian plane.

The Islamic republic "calls for an immediate halt to all interference and provocation by the British embassy", the foreign ministry said in a statement.

It warned that Iran's response "will not be limited to summoning the ambassador (to the ministry) if this attitude persists".
