Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird announces Canada is breaking diplomatic relations with Iran during an availability at the APEC Summit in Vladivostok, Russia, Friday, Sept. 7, 2012. Baird said Friday that the Canadian embassy in Tehran will close immediately and Iranian diplomats in Canada have been given five days to leave. He says he's worried about the safety of diplomats in Tehran following recent attacks on the British embassy there. He's also warning Canadians to avoid traveling to Iran. Baird says Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism and has been spreading anti-Semitic hatred. (AP Photo/The Canadian Press,Adrian Wyld ) less
