The government Wednesday said it will deport nine more Iranians, including two former employees of Iran's Embassy in London, unless they leave voluntarily within five days.

Another group of nine Iranians, all former embassy employees, were given 10 days to get out and had to leave Britain by Sunday or be expelled. One of them failed to leave and police arrested him Wednesday, the Home Office said.Foreign Secretary Sir Geoffrey Howe told Parliament two weeks ago that Britain planned to expel an unspecified number of Iranians following Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's Feb. 14 death sentence on British author Salman Rushdie.
