Developing . . .

On Friday, an Iranian news agency reported that a group of armed Islamic extremists raided the Iranian embassy in London.

Fars News Agency reports:

Early reports said the raiders are four men who have opened their way into the embassy premises, while threatening people on the scene with machetes and baseball bats. The London Police have reportedly deployed around the embassy but took no action in the first couple of hours after the attack.

The slogans chanted by the raiders indicate that they are members of Sadeq Shirazi Shiite extremist sect, supported by London.

"A few followers of Shirazi have attacked the Islamic Republic of Iran's Embassy in London and broke the flag mast," Iran's Ambassador to Britain Hamid Baeedinejad said in a tweet, adding that the raiders are "chanting slogans against Iranian officials".
