TEHRAN - Some 200 students held a demonstration outside the British embassy in Tehran on Sunday to protest at what Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the "savage" police treatment of people involved in street unrest in London last week.

Watched by around 50 riot police, some students threw eggs towards the embassy compound and at the end of the protest they held up masks of Mark Duggan, the man whose shooting by police sparked the protests and riots in Britain.
