Serbian protesters have broken into the US embassy in Belgrade following a mass protest against Kosovo's independence. The demonstrators have set fire to the building's facade and have taken down the US flag and burnt it in anger over US support for the new nation of Kosovo. A reported 150,000 people took part in the protest rally.
Russia and China, among other nations, have condemned Kosovo's declaration of independence, saying it sets a precedent that separatist groups around the world will seek to emulate. No injuries have been reported in the incident as the building was closed and evacuated.
