Tehran, Iran, Feb. 14 – Radical Islamists attacked the German embassy in Tehran on Tuesday, protesting the printing of insulting cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in European dailies.

Dozens of members of the Bassij, an off-shoot of the Revolutionary Guards, hurled stones at the embassy building shattering several windows.

They chanted, “Death to America”, “Death to Israel”, and “Fascist Germany is the slave of the Zionists”, demanding the closure of the embassy.

Several U.S. and Israeli flags were set on fire outside the embassy compound.

On Friday, the German daily Der Tagesspiegel published a cartoon of Iranian football players with explosives tied to around their chests, drawing further outrage from Tehran. Germany hosts the 2006 World Cup.
