Chaos In Mexico: Angry Mob Attempts To Set Fire To Israeli Embassy

• Zero Hedge

AFP journalists report that riots broke out overnight between police and a group of 200 angry protesters outside the Israeli embassy in Mexico. The demonstrators, participating in a protest called "Urgent Action for Rafah," were denouncing the Israeli military operation in the southern Gazan city of Rafah. The unrest followed an Israeli strike on a displacement camp near Rafah that killed 45 people earlier in the week. 

Some protesters covered their faces and threw stones at riot police who blocked their path to the diplomatic complex in the city's Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood.

Around 200 people joined the "Urgent Action for Rafah" demonstration, about 30 of whom started to break down barriers preventing them from reaching the Israeli mission.
