UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council on Tuesday strongly condemned attacks on foreign embassies in Syria by pro-government demonstrators and called on Damascus to protect diplomatic premises and staff.

Crowds attacked the Turkish and Saudi Arabian embassies in Damascus on Saturday night, as well as France's honorary consulate in Latakia and diplomatic offices in Aleppo.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moualem apologized on Monday for the attacks, which came after the Arab League announced it was suspending Damascus for its crackdown on eight months of protests against President Bashar Assad.
