Tehran: Death to US,!Death to Israel!


Hundreds of people demonstrated, Thursday afternoon, in front of the Swiss embassy in Iran, which includes an office representing United States interests in the absence of diplomatic between the Tehran and Washington, DC governments. The demonstration was reportedly organized by Muslim students in response to an American amateur video which has been deemed offensive to Islam.

During the demonstration, Egyptian and Libyan flags were waived and participants chanted, "Death to the United States!" "Death to the director!" and "Death to Israel!" Demonstrations continued in Gaza, Egypt and Yemen.
