Gambia cut ties with Iran and order diplomats to leave
The Gambia has said it is cutting all ties with Iran and ordered all Iranian government representatives to leave within 48 hours.
The two countries, both of which have faced criticism over their human rights records, have had fairly close ties.
Officials from the small West African nation gave no reason for the move.
But last month Nigeria said it had intercepted an illegal arms shipment in Lagos from Iran, reportedly destined for The Gambia.
