Iranian Kurds stage protest at embassy in The Hague

Iran's ambassador to the Netherlands, Hossein Tajgardoun, was injured Thursday when one of a series of international protests erupted into a brawl between his staff and 19 Iranian Kurds who briefly occupied the Iranian Embassy here. Police said the fracas grew out of a demonstration against the Iranian regime of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

In France, meanwhile, several dozen anti-Khomeini Iranian Kurds demonstrated outside the Paris headquarters of UNESCO, demanding that the International Red Cross send investigators check on alleged human rights violations in government treatment of peasants in Iranian Kurdistan.

An anonymous caller to the Associated Press office in London said the protests were carried out by Sedayen, a Marxist group opposed to the Ayatollah's revolutionary regime.
