A few dozen Iraqi protesters on Thursday briefly breached the Swedish embassy in Baghdad over the burning of the Quran by an Iraqi living in Sweden, an AFP photographer reported.

The demonstrators, supporters of Shia leader Muqtada al-Sadr, entered the building and remained inside for about 15 minutes before leaving peacefully as security forces deployed, the photographer said.
