KUWAIT CITY — Witnesses say demonstrators have stormed into the Syrian Embassy compound in Kuwait, breaking windows and hoisting the flag of the opposition to the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Saturday's attack came as activists said a government assault killed more than 200 people in the Syrian city of Homs.
Some political groups in Kuwait have called for the expulsion of Syrian diplomats from the Gulf nation. Gulf states have played a central role in Arab efforts to end Syria's bloodshed.
Witnesses say there were no serious injuries at the embassy, where protesters ripped down the Syrian flag and replaced it with the colors of the uprising. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief media
Police later cleared the area and blocked roads.
