To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will call on the Iranian authorities to halt the destruction of an historically important Bahá'i cemetary in Shiraz; and if he will make a statement.

I was deeply concerned to learn of the destruction of a Baha'i cemetery in Shiraz. On 14 May 2014, I made a statement on this issue, calling for Iran to abide by its international commitments to ensure all Iranians are free to practice their religion without fear of persecution. This includes protection of religious sites.
