Supporters of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad attacked late Saturday the Saudi embassy in the capital Damascus to denounce the Arab League decision to suspend the membership of Syria after it failed to end the bloodbath in the country, the dpa reported according to Saudi Press Agency.
"Protesters contesting the Arab League decision against Syria broke the glass of the embassy by throwing stones and destroyed furniture inside the embassy complex," the agency said without elaborating.
According to Syrian activists based in Lebanon the embassy was empty at the time of the attack. Al-Assad's supporters took to the streets of the capital Damascus earlier to voice their support for their leader and blast the Arab League's decision.
Saudi Arabia was one of the 19-member states in the Arab League to vote with the decision, while Lebanon and Yemen voted against it and Iraq abstained.
