A number of Iranian students entered the British embassy compound in Tehran and threw stones Tuesday. Some of the demonstrators climbed the embassy gate, burned the British flag, and replaced it with the Iranian one.

The Iranian students were calling for the expulsion of the British ambassador after the imposition of a new round of Western sanctions on Iran last week.
