The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Iran’s For­eign Min­istry says protesters tried to attack and dam­age the Ira­nian Embassy in Paris. For­eign Min­istry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi al­leged that po­lice in the French cap­i­tal did not re­spond promptly to the dis­tur­bance Fri­day. Ear­lier Satur­day, a Paris po­lice spokes­woman said “in­di­vid­u­als” had thrown ob­jects and smashed win­dows at the embassy. The spokes­woman said of­fi­cers were called af­ter the trouble started out­side the build­ing. She says the of­fi­cers searched 12 peo­ple but didn’t take any­one into cus­tody be­cause the embassy didn’t want to file a com­plaint.
