Iranian embassy staff member shot in Brazil

Police say a chauffeur for the Iranian embassy in Brazil was shot and wounded in a robbery attempt.
A police officer says the incident took place Monday night when three gunmen tried to steal the car as the chauffeur prepared to enter it after leaving a supermarket in Brasilia. The officer asked not to be identified because she was not authorized to speak to the press.
She said the chauffeur, an Iranian citizen, was shot in the chest when he reacted to the gunmen.
The owner of a nearby store rushed the driver to a hospital where doctors said his wound was not life-threatening.
