Video posted online by witnesses showed the diplomat, Ramin Mehmanparast, being jostled and shouted at as he crossed a street, before police officers stepped in to protect him, ordering the protesters back. A spokesman for the New York City Police Department told The Associated Press that Mr. Mehmanparast was confronted on Second Avenue near East 48th Street.
The protesters included a man wrapped in an old Iranian flag; another man in a yellow vest worn by supporters of the Mujahedeen Khalq, a powerful Iranian exile group known as the M.E.K. or M.K.O.; and a woman wearing the T-shirt of Ma Hastim, Persian for “We Are,” a rights group associated with the Iranian exile community in Los Angeles.
