STOCKHOLM (AP) — One person was injured and a handful of demonstrators arrested after they tried to force their way into the Iranian Embassy in Stockholm, hurling rocks and Molotov cocktails, police said Thursday.

Police spokeswoman Christina Johansson said that four or five people were arrested during
the protest against capital punishment in Iran.

About 100 people took part in the demonstration outside the embassy, and about 70 tried to push their way through a line of police and into the building. Johansson said "the situation has calmed down now."

Johansson said one demonstrator was injured, but it was unclear how seriously.
