Supporters of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez burned a US flag, set tires ablaze and blocked the gates of a social club during a visit by the American ambassador, stranding him and his delegation inside for more than two hours, a US Embassy spokesman said. The crowd of protesters grew throughout the day as Ambassador William Brownfield made several stops on his visit to the town of San Juan de los Morros, some 75 kilometers southwest of Caracas, embassy spokesman Brian Penn said. Police stood by as between 100 and 200 protesters blocked the gates of the Italian-Venezuelan social club, chanting "Yankee go home!" along with pro-Chavez slogans and obscenities, Penn said.
