"Protesters backed by the Syrian government rallied outside the U.S. Embassy in Damascus for 31 hours this weekend, throwing projectiles at the compound and at one point pelting two Embassy employees with food, the State Department said Sunday. The U.S. has since complained to the Syrian government. A senior State Department official said Damascus organized the 'angry' demonstration, which started Friday and didn't end until Saturday evening, in opposition to U.S. Ambassador Robert Ford's visit to the turbulent city of Hama earlier in the week."
