Student protesters loyal to the government stormed the British embassy in Tehran and its residential compound Tuesday in the most serious security breach of diplomatic sites since the American embassy takeover in 1979.Here is the article at al Jazeera.
Live television footage from Iran's state broadcaster showed angry mobs climbing on the wall of the British embassy building in downtown Tehran and two young men attempting to break the lock on the iron gate of the compound. They brought down the Union Jack flag and raised Iran's, according to Iranian news media, and took some occupants hostage which were later released.
Does anyone remember the last time?
