Violence flares at protest near US Embassy in Lebanon

In Jakarta, Indonesia, that thousands of protesters gathered outside the U.S. Embassy with signs reading "Pray for Palestine" and "Freedom for Palestinians".

They were blocked from reaching the complex by a metal gate sealing the road leading to the embassy, and security forces fired teargas and water cannons to repel demonstrators who tried to open the gate by force.

Demonstrators burnt tyres, the USA and Israeli flags as they pushed to break through a barbed wire erected by security forces around the embassy complex, according to an Anadolu Agency reporter.

The call to protest had been made by several political groups, including the Islamic Constitutional Movement (ICM) linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, and civil society associations.
