The Danish embassy in Tehran is attacked by hundreds protesting the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons. Protestors burn Danish flags and chant "Death to Denmark."

When the embassy gates catch fire, the Iranian security forces intervene to disperse the mob. Violent riots by so many Muslims in so many countries prompts Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen to lament that the situation is spinning out of the control of those governments.
