Iranian students break into UK Embassy residence

Iran's official news agency says dozens of hardline students have broken into the British Embassy residence in Tehran to protest London's support for Israel's air strikes on Gaza.
The IRNA agency says the students stormed the compound Tuesday evening and pulled down the British flag.
IRNA says the students then hoisted a Palestinian flag at compound's entrance before police forced them to leave.
The news agency says the break in lasted about an hour and the area is now calm. No injuries were reported.
The four-day air assault on Gaza has sparked outrage against Israel across much of the Middle East.
