Anti-US, UK anger rises
A protester in Hebron lets fly with a stone from a sling
Protests are growing against the US-led air strikes on Iraq as the holy month of Ramadan begins.
In the West Bank, hospitals said at least 100 Palestinians were wounded when thousands demonstrated near a Jewish settlement in Hebron for an end to the attacks.
In Jordan, more than 1,000 students demonstrated inside the campus of the largest state university in Amman on Saturday.
During a procession, they chanted: "Arab rulers where are you! Death to America and Britain and Glory to Iraq."
"Clinton, thank you for feeling with us in Ramadan. You will pay hard", said one placard.
The students then climbed on the roof of the main gate and tore up cards painted in the colours of the United States, British and Israeli flags.
After scaling the embassy wall, protesters ripped down and burned a US flag. They also smashed notice boards on the gates of the embassy before heading to the nearby residence of the US ambassador.
US guards inside the compound fired tear gas at the protesters, who were mainly university students.
The Syrian Government has strongly condemned the joint American and British air strikes, although Saturday's demonstration was not organised by the government.
Protesters also stormed the British Cultural Council offices, smashing doors and windows before dispersing.
Elsewhere, there have been protests in Bulgaria, Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan and Britain itself.
A BBC correspondent says there is concern that feelings could run higher if the attacks on Iraq continues into the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
"We have the most profound admiration for Islam. Our dispute is with a leader who threatens Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
"As the crescent moon rises and the ninth month begins, Muslim-Americans - and all Americans - wish you the blessings of faith and friendship.
"May our prayers for a better world soon be answered. Ramadan Kareem."
An unscheduled message broadcast on Iraqi state radio attacked other Arab nations for their reactions to the bombings.
"What must be understood in the light of this continuous treacherous aggression against Iraq and its people, and therefore the Arab nation, is that this criminal aggression will not spare any of the Arabs."
