Man burns American flag during minute silence for 9/11 victims

Protesters outside the US embassy in London set fire to a US flag during a minute's silence held to mark the moment when the first hijacked airliner hit the World Trade Centre in New York 10 years ago.

A number of radical Islamic groups including Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) gathered outside the embassy on the tenth anniversary of the attacks.

The group shouted "USA terrorists" and brandished anti-American placards.

Several members of the Muslim groups made anti-American speeches following the flag burning.

One said: "You will always face suffering, you will always face humiliation, unless you withdraw your troops from Muslim lands.''

Another declared that America had been "defeated in Iraq and defeated in Afghanistan''.
