Demo Outside US Embassy in Stockholm

Around one hundred Swedish-Iranians have been demonstrating outside the American embassy in Stockholm following the storming of Baghdad’s Camp Ashraf by Iraqi forces.

At least two policemen have died and around 420 people were wounded after Iraqi soldiers stormed the camp on Tuesday. Iran’s People's Mujahedeen set up Camp Ashraf as a base to operate against the  Iranian government.

The Swedish Foreign Ministry has confirmed that there are several Swedes in the camp.

One of the Stockholm demonstrators, Forough Shahriary, told Swedish Radio News that Sweden, which holds the European Union Presidency, should act, including putting pressure on the United States, as well as the Iraqi and Iranian authorities.
