Angry Lebanese demonstrators torched the Danish consulate in Beirut on Sunday, further escalating a violent turn in protests over the publication by European newspapers of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad.

Thousands of protesters, some carrying green Islamic flags, chanted “God is Greatest” outside the burning building as thick black smoke billowed into the sky.

Some stood on top of a fire engine, one of three damaged by protesters to prevent fire fighters putting the blaze out.

It was not immediately clear if the building was empty.

On Saturday furious Syrians had set fire to the Danish and Norwegian embassies in Damascus. They also damaged the Swedish embassy and tried to storm the French mission but were held off by riot police.
