DUBAI, Jan. 3 (Xinhua) -- The United Arab Emirates condemned the attack on the US embassy in Baghdad, terming it a "blatant violation of diplomatic norms and conventions," the official news agency WAM said Friday.
"The attempt to storm the US embassy represents a serious escalation under international law," WAM quoted a UAE foreign ministry statement as saying.
Hundreds of demonstrators, taking part in rituals to mourn members of the Hashd Shaabi killed in a US attack in Iraq, stormed the US embassy in Baghdad's Green Zone on Tuesday.
