Photos From Anti-British Demonstrations In Iran

From the wire services:

  

An Iranian clergyman throws a rock at the British Embassy in Tehran, Iran, Sunday, April 1, 2007, during a protest calling for the expulsion of the country’s ambassador because of the standoff over Iran’s capture of 15 British sailors and marines.

Iranians chant anti-British slogans during a demonstration in support of the seizure of 15 British sailors and marines, after the weekly Friday prayers in Tehran. Iran on Saturday again warned Britain against politicising the seizure of its 15 navy personnel, saying that could complicate efforts to resolve the escalating crisis.

And from earlier in the week:

  

Iranian students hold placards in front of the Foreign Ministry office in Tehran March 29, 2007. The students were objecting to the release of one of the British military personnel arrested on Friday in the Persian Gulf.

Somehow it all looks strangely familiar.
