Iran's ambassador to Yemen passes away

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Iranian Ambassador to Yemen Hassan Irlou who had tested positive for COVID-19 in Yemen last week passed away after coming back to Iran, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday.

Irlou had been also suffering from injuries inflicted by chemical weapons used by former Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq during the eight-year war between Iran and Iraq in the 1980.

He was diagnosed with the coronavirus in Yemen and came back to Iran in an inappropriate condition due to a delay in required cooperation by some countries in the region.

Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Saturday that Iran had contacted with some states in the region to bring Irlou back to the country.
