Syria beefs up security at embassies after attacks

Syria beefs up security at embassies after attacks

Police have beefed up their presence outside the U.S. and French embassies in the Syrian capital a day after pro-government supporters attacked the compounds.
Mobs broke windows at both embassies Monday to protest a visit last week by the American and French ambassadors to the opposition stronghold of Hama in central Syria. The French Foreign Ministry said three embassy workers were injured.
Police were deployed heavily around the embassies Tuesday.
Syrian authorities said the visits to Hama were interference in the country's internal affairs.
The U.S. and France both accused Syrian forces of being too slow to respond to the attacks and demanded the government abide by its international obligations to protect diplomatic missions.
