BERLIN - The assassination of Syrian-Kurdish leader Meshaal al-Tammo prompted opponents of Syrian President Bashaar Assad to storm embassies and consulates across Europe on Saturday and in the early hours of Sunday.

Roughly  24 protestors ripped down a fence in Berlin's Tiergarten district  and entered the Syrian Embassy. The Syrian ambassador,who lives in the building, contacted the police.

According to media reports, the activists peacefully left the embassy and there were no arrests. Some furniture and paintings were damaged. The protesters spray painted “Free Syria” on a wall outside of the Embassy. 

Approximately 30 anti-Syrian government protested in front of Syria's consulate in Hamburg. Four demonstrators entered the consulate building and were arrested by the police.
