Canberra: Syrian embassy stormed

February 4: Up to forty people stormed the Syrian embassy at about 9.30pm, causing extensive damage inside. The attack coincided with embassies in London, Berlin, Athens, Cairo, Kuwait and Tripoli, in protest against the Syrian government’s brutal repression of dissidents.

Three people were in the Canberra embassy but no one was hurt. No arrests have been made and the attackers have not been identified.

The Federal Police say the raid happened just as security was being tightened at the embassy as reports of the events overseas was received.
