Five police officers have been seriously injured in shocking violent clashes between protesters and pro-Iran thugs outside the regime's embassy in London tonight.
Ugly scenes erupted as hundreds demonstrated against Iran’s brutal crackdown on ongoing hijab protests that have so far left dozens dead.
Pictures showed crowds surging at cops against a barrier as they tried to break in to embassy in Kensington. Officers were pelted with bottles and other projectiles as they guarded the diplomatic building.
Pro-regime supporters were also seen fighting with sticks as they clashed with individuals calling for an end to the Islamic Republic of Iran on the West London street.
Iranian Lawyer Eyad Aldulaimi based in London described scenes of "angry protesters storming the Iranian Embassy in London" after individuals managed to get through security gates protecting the embassy.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed the protests outside the Iranian Embassy in London turned "violent" on Sunday afternoon, leading to a swathe of arrests.
Late on Sunday evening, the force confirmed at least five officers were being treated in hospital with serious injuries.
"At least five officers have sustained injuries including broken bones after they were attacked with masonry, bottles and other projectiles in unacceptable scenes of violent disorder", the Met police said.
A dozen people were arrested.
