Supporters of Syrian President Assad attack US embassy

Supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have attacked the US embassy compound in Damascus, diplomats say.
Earlier, security guards at the French embassy fired into the air to drive back a crowd of Assad loyalists.
The protests come days after the US and French ambassadors visited the central city of Hama, where a massive anti-government rally was held on Friday.
They also coincide with a government-organised dialogue conference which many opposition leaders are boycotting.
The meeting is discussing possible political reforms, which the government hope will bring an end to the four-month-old uprising.
