Fire Bombs Thrown at Danish Embassy in Iran
A crowd of about 400 demonstrators threw petrol bombs and large rocks at the Danish embassy in Tehran tonight in a protest over the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad. A correspondent at the scene said about 20 petrol bombs had been thrown at the embassy, which sits behind a high wall in a residential district of northern Tehran.

Only one of the petrol bombs had gone over the wall, to loud cheers from the crowd.

The embassy building itself did not appear to be damaged.
