"We have gathered here to day to support those that have gathered for the Wall Street movement. We have come here in show of support," one protester said.

Some protesters set the Israeli flag on fire, while they chanted "Death to Capitalism."

The Swiss embassy has represented US interests in Iran since Washington cut off diplomatic relations with Tehran shortly after its 1979 Islamic Revolution.
