Rioters target US embassy
Cars were set alight as rioters turned violent
Protesters threw firebombs at the American embassy in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, as a demonstration turned into a riot.
They were protesting at allied air attacks on Serbian targets in the Kosovo crisis and carried anti-war banners.
Three cars were burned as some of the protesters tried to storm the US building.
They dispersed peacefully after riot police arrived and a fire truck extinguished the blaze.
Anger at Nato presence
About 12,000 Nato troops are based in Macedonia. The special Nato force has been deployed there for weeks in case it needed to extract the OSCE mission from Kosovo.
Macedonia, which borders Kosovo, achieved independence from Yugoslavia in 1993, but there are still many nationalists and members of the Serb minority sympathetic to Yugoslavia.
