Demonstrators break into Syrian embassy
Around 10 people have been detained by police after they broke into the Syrian embassy in the northern Stockholm suburb of Danderyd.
A spokesperson for the demonstrators, who the TT news agency says belong to a Christian Syrian party, said there were between 30 and 40 participants, and that they wanted to send a message to the world. “We want to work for the overthrow of the Assad regime”, he said.
After the police detentions around 15 people continued to demonstrate outside the embassy, chanting “We want democracy in Syria”.
