Iranian students have stormed the UK embassy in Tehran, chanting "death to England" and bringing down the British flag. Students clashed with riot police as they climbed over the embassy's gate, rushed into the building and started throwing documents from the windows.
The protesters also chanted "Down with Britain", "Down with America", "Down with Israel" and "Students are Awake and Hate Britain," according to Fars news agency.
The Iranian authorities condemned the attack and later held back the students.
