Iranian protesters re-entered the British embassy compound in Tehran late Tuesday, shortly after police had chased out a group of more than 20 demonstrators who had stormed the mission, state television reported.

The protesters back inside were scattering papers taken from the embassy and setting them on fire, witnesses told AFP.

Police fired tear gas at the protesters inside the embassy grounds to disperse them, the Fars news agency reported. It added that several protesters had been injured, one critically, as had several officers.

Tehran police chief General Hossein Sajadi-Nia was at the scene, ordering the protesters to end their action.
