Iranian protesters storm UK embassy


Dozens of young Iranian men have entered buildings inside the British embassy compound in Tehran, throwing rocks, petrol bombs and burning documents looted from the offices.

The semi-official Fars news agency said security forces were trying to eject the protesters, who were a minority from a larger group staging an anti-UK demonstration outside the compound.

The agency referred to the protesters as students who were chanting "Death to America", "Death to England" and "Death to Israel" among other slogans.

Live TV pictures showed several of the people on top of the entry gate to the embassy, waving Islamic flags.

One protester was seen waving a framed picture of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II apparently found inside the compound.

The British foreign ministry issued a statement saying it was "outraged" by the situation.

"It is utterly unacceptable and we condemn it," it said.

The Reuters news agency reported that embassy employees had fled the compound via a rear entrance and that Iranian riot police were trying to restore order.

"London banned all UK financial institutions from doing business with their Iranian counterparts, (including the Iran's central bank), as part of a new wave of sanctions by Western countries." - Just like they did in Libya where a new banking system was put into affect even before there was a new leading government or before they had murdered Gadaffi. Banksters again prodding the world into another massive conflict but before they can acheive this, they want to do away with the freedom Iran has with printing their own money and having their own banking system. So again, we are allowed to talk about these things, but what are we going to do to stop the propaganda that is leading the world into a greater conflict?
