Police at Libyan Embassy Friday morning.

Swedish police continue to guard the Libyan Embassy here in Stockholm after detaining three exiled Libyan demonstrators during a night-time protest inside and outside of the building.

Some of the 20 demonstrators were able to enter the building and two men flying the opposition red, green and black flag from a window threatened to jump. Others painted the opposition colours on the embassy door and burned the Tripoli regime's green flag inside the building.

Police removed a number of demonstrators who had chained themselves at the entrance of the building and in the first hour of Friday morning, all the protestors voluntarily left the scene. .

Speaking to Swedish Radio news, one stated that their demand was the removal of Col. Gadaffi.

He explained his resistance to the regime in Tripoli and the reason for his family seeking refuge in Sweden is that his father was murdered by the regime in 1987.

The Libyan society in Sweden is demanding that Sweden close the embassy and expel the new ambassador who supports the regime.

The former ambassador resigned to join the opposition.
