Opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad pelted the Russian Embassy in London with stones overnight, causing significant damage to the building, the embassy said in a statement on Friday.

“On the night of August 16-17, the consulate department of the Russian Embassy in London was attacked by a large group of people who were chanting slogans against the Syrian government and throwing stones at the building hosting the diplomatic mission,” the statement said.

The building had several window glasses shattered and suffered “significant material damage,” it said. None of the embassy employees was hurt.

Russian diplomats expressed regret over the conduct of London police who they said had arrived at the scene but had “failed to take proper measures to neutralize the unsanctioned demonstration which was under way and detain the attackers.”
