Attackers on Embassy in Copenhagen Nabbed

Danish police have arrested six people who had scaled the walls of the Iranian Embassy in Copenhagen, in an attack that drew a strong protest from Tehran.
The arrests were made on Thursday after the six, described as four Iranian expatriates seeking asylum in Sweden and two others holding Swedish residency, violated the Iranian diplomatic premises in the Danish capital, Press TV reported.
The incident saw the invaders entering the mission’s courtyard earlier in the day, putting up profane placards and forcing down the Iranian national flag from the flagstaff. Copenhagen police superintendent, Henrik Stormer, said the detainees were being held in police custody.
Following the incident, Danish Ambassador in Tehran Danny Annan was summoned to the Iranian Foreign Ministry and notified of the Islamic Republic’s protest over the attack. Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said Tehran has criticized the attack by the “anti-revolutionary elements”, calling it in contravention of international regulations and demanding that the Danish government expeditiously address the issue.
