Dubai — The first secretary of the Swiss Confederation in Tehran was found dead on Tuesday after she fell from a skyscraper that lived north of the city, an ambulance spokesman said in Iran’s news agency. It was reported that it was said by the company.

The Swiss Foreign Ministry (FDFA) said an employee of the Iranian embassy died in an accident without identifying the victim. “FDFA and its chief federal councilor, Ignazio Cassis, were shocked by the tragic death and expressed deep condolences to their families,” he said.

Iranian paramedics spokesman Mojtaba Khaledi reported that a diplomat’s body was found by a gardener after an employee arriving early on Tuesday noticed she was missing. ..
