Protesters storm US embassy in Baghdad

Hundreds of protesters have stormed the US embassy in Baghdad shouting "death to America’".

They lit fires, battered down doors and threw bricks at bullet proof glass in the heavily fortified compound.

President Trump has accused Iran of orchestrating the protests after US air strikes against a Shia militia group killed 25 people.

Sky’s foreign affairs editor Deborah Haynes reports.
