Protest at the Iranian embassy in Copenhagen triggered by the recent execution of five kurdish/iranian political prisoners in Iran.
About 100 people attacked the embassy and police with stones, police spokesman Mads Firlings said.
The police initially responded with pepper spray and then called in reinforcements, including police dogs, he said.
Four demonstrators were arrested, and one officer was lightly wounded, he said.
The demonstrations began peacefully but turned violent when a representative of the Iranian Embassy "provoked the demonstrators" with "very bad words in Persian," said Hilsen Mahmoud, the demonstration organizer and a member of the group Free Iran Society.
In response, the demonstrators attacked the embassy, he said.
