Danish cosulate in Beirut, Lebanon is burning
Angry and aggressive protesters run amok.Dannebrog (the Danish flag) was burned, car tires set alight and a sea of Hamas-people were wearing vests where the Danish flag was cut through by a drawing of a sabre.
Almost 20.000 protestors were according to news agencies on the street. For a long time they were held back about 200 metres from the consulate. About 2000 police and soldiers were out keeping an eye on the protesting throng. They broke through anyway and set fire to the consulate.
Just to make sure that we knew this is all about respect for religion, they added a neat little spectacle:
When the demonstration in front of the Danish consulate began dispersing several protestors continued on to the Christian quarter of Beirut - which is situated in the city´s commercial disctrict - once arrived, they began throwing rocks at a church.
