Mob Attacks UK Embassy in Tehran

Mob Attacks UK Embassy in Tehran

Rocks and firecrackers have been thrown at the British embassy in Tehran as the row over 15 captured sailors and marines escalates.

Witnesses said there had been several small blasts and smoke could be seen rising in the compound.

Demonstrators called for the expulsion of the UK ambassador and the closure of the embassy, calling it a "den of spies".

Around 200 people massed outside, chanting "death to Britain" and "death to America".
