Bassijis Clash With Police Outside British Embassy in Iran

May 28, 2004, 23:08

Bassijis demonstrators clashed violently with security forces Friday as they again tried to storm the British embassy in Tehran.

Riot police made several baton charges to push back a crowd of 200-300 bassji protestors trying to push their way towards the main gate of the embassy compound. Several demonstrators were hurt, while the crowd threw stones and firecrackers at the embassy.

It was the sixth such demonstration against the British embassy in 11 days in protest at the actions of the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq, in which Britain is a key component. The demonstrators, mainly young fanatic Islamists, are particularly incensed by reports of the profanation of Shiite holy sites in Iraq by coalition forces.
