Protesters stormed the US Embassy along Roxas Boulevard on Monday morning to oppose the Balikatan exercises.

They splashed paint on the main gate, including the signage of the embassy.

The League of Filipino Students (LFS) said they are against the presence of American military in the country.

Embassy guards were caught by surprise as the number of protesters swelled.

Policemen quickly arrived at the scene to disperse the protesters. – ANC, April 16  2012
