Mob Attacks U.S Embassy In Serbia
Rioters stormed the U.S. embassy in Belgrade, Serbia, on Thursday and started a fire in protest of Kosovo's declaration of independence earlier this week.
Masked attackers broke into the building, which has been closed this week, and tried to throw furniture from an office. A blaze broke out inside one of the offices. The neighboring Croatian Embassy also was attacked by the same group.
Crowds outside cheered and chanted, egging the demonstrators on as they stormed the embassy, which was closed at the time and had no police guarding it, Reuters reported.

- Cali -- but im a north east girl at heart!
i just watched the press conference about this .........
it's crazy !!!!
a charred body was found in/around the embassy -- they think it's the body of a protester though, not of anyone who works at the embassy nor of the marines who protect the embassy.
apparently the protesters are ticked at the u.s. for being among the first to recognize kosovo. they're also targeting turkish, british, croatian embassies.
