Syrian Protesters Attack Russian Embassy

Russian embassy in Libyan capital of Tripoli was attacked by several dozens of Syrian protesters on Sunday, a day after Russia and China had vetoed the UN resolution on Syria. 

      About 200 of protesters stormed into the embassy, sloganizing accusations of Russian and Chinese decisions to block the UN resolution against Syria. Then they climbed onto the roof of the embassy and damaged a Russian flag, replacing it by a flag of Syrian opposition. 

      According to the head of Syrian National Coulcil (the main opposition centre in Syria), there was no violence towards workers of the embassy. 

      “Libyan authorities have expressed their apologies and assured us that the incident will be thoroughly investigated and that the security will be provided to our diplomatic mission in Tripoli,” Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

      Russia and China veto was critised by all other members of UN Security Council. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said on Saturday she was "disgusted" by the Russian and Chinese veto on the draft. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon also condemned the veto, calling it “a great disappointment to the people of Syria and the Middle East, and to all supporters of democracy and human rights.” 

      Today the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov starts his visit to Syria. Russia will try to come to an agreement with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad about pacific settlement of the problem.
