U.S. embassy in Baghdad attacked by protesters following airstrikes

Protesters chanted "Down, Down USA!" while hurling water bottles, smashing security cameras before entering embassy grounds.

Following U.S. airstrikes against Iraq and Syria on Sunday, protesters stormed the compound of the United States embassy in Iraq on Tuesday.

Guards inside the embassy used tear gas to try and prevent demonstrators from moving towards main buildings inside the compound, an Iraqi security source told NBC News on condition of anonymity.

They chanted “Down, Down USA!” while hurling water bottles and smashing security cameras, according to The Associated Press. An AP reporter at the scene saw flames rising from inside the compound and at least three U.S. soldiers on the roof of the main building inside the embassy.

Without any evidence to back his blame, Trump blamed Iran.
