Hundreds of protesters burned the USA flag in front of the US embassy in Athens on Saturday, to condemn the US-led airstrikes on Syria. The protest was reportedly organised by the Greek Communist Party. Demonstrators rallied at Syntagma Square in central Athens before marching to the US embassy, where they were seen writing «Americans, murderers of peoples» on the pavement in red paint... Еще. Police vehicles barricaded access to the embassy. A heavy police presence was deployed to the site. Journalist and political editor Nikos Boyiopoulos said, «They are murderers, and the pretexts they are using are also baseless. We already know that for 15 years they've been searching for Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction that never were there. We know that they are searching for Gaddafi's weapons of mass destruction that never existed.» The US, UK and France launched air strikes against multiple government targets in Damascus early on Saturday morning, targeting alleged chemical weapons sites as well as a Syrian military base in Homs. The air strikes are a response to claims of an alleged chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them «staged» and a «fabrication».
