UN Security Council strongly condemns attacks against British Embassy in Tehran (2)


17:07, November 30, 2011

Thousands of angry Iranians staged a protest before the British embassy in central Tehran early Tuesday, and some of them broke into the compound.

In front of the British Council compound in the Qolhak area in northern Tehran, some 300 students staged another protest and about 100 of them forced their way into the building despite the police prevention, local semi-official Mehr news agency reported.

British flags at both the embassy and the British Council were dragged down by the protesters and replaced with the Iranian national flags.

The rampage came one day after Iran's highest legislative body, Guardian Council of the Constitution, unanimously approved reducing the diplomatic ties with Britain in response to its " hostile" policy against Iran.

Britain severed all links with the Iranian banks last week as part of its new financial sanctions in the wake of a report by the International Atomic Energy Agency that expressed concern over Tehran's controversial nuclear program.
