"The local diplomatic police have tightened security," a source at the embassy said. "Reinforced police cordons can be seen around the premises. Inside the embassy certain entry restrictions have been introduced."

He described the situation in Tehran as "stable on the whole."

"There were some demonstrations in the city on January 2, but we did not see them," he said.
