Iran strongly filed protest to Qatar after the tiny sheikhdom's naval guards attacked Iranian fishermen in the Persian Gulf, killing one and injuring several others.

Foreign Ministry summoned Qatar's Ambassador to Tehran, Saleh al-quwari, to convey Tehran's 'strong protest' to the attack Friday morning.

Deputy Interior Minister for security affairs, Ali Asghar Ahmadi described the attack as 'unacceptable, improper and outside international norms'.

'The Islamic Republic is determined to defend the rights of its citizens and the related officials are carefully investigating the cause of this incident,' he gave lip service.

Iran, Ahmadi said, is able to defend the country's territorial integrity and its citizens' rights under any condition."
