DUBAI - Iranian students protested outside the Swiss embassy in Tehran on Thursday against an anti-Islam film that sparked violent reactions in several Muslim countries and the killing of the US ambassador to Libya.

Additional security forces were deployed around the embassy, which looks after US interests in Iran where Washington has no diplomatic relations, Fars news agency reported. It gave no estimate of the size of the protest.



Members of one student organization present called on Muslim nations to "cut their relations with the United States and demonstrate their religious values against the colonial system," Fars said.

Protesters expressed support for demonstrators in Libya and Egypt, shouting slogans including "Muslims unite" and "Mohammad is God's prophet," the report said.
