Riot police at London demo
Kurdish protesters on the roof of the Greek embassy in London
Riot police have been called to clear hundreds of Kurdish demonstrators from outside the Greek embassy in London.
"We are ready to die. There are more than 100 of us in here and we have petrol. We are ready to burn ourselves."
As protesters staged a mass sit-down outside, police with riot shields lined up on the opposite pavement.
One woman was taken to hospital after setting her clothes on fire. Her condition is not known.
Greek embassies were targeted by Kurds in London and across Europe because Greek officials in Nairobi handed Mr Ocalan over to Kenyan officials.
London Fire Brigade and ambulance service crews are also at the scene after reports of gas. The police spokeswoman said: "Officers have detected a smell of gas from the building. There are no other details at this stage."
Other demonstrations are taking place in The Hague, Geneva, Copenhagen, Marseilles, Brussels and several other cities.
