over and out
HUNDREDS of Osama bin Laden supporters clashed with English Defence League extremists today as a funeral service for the assassinated terror leader sparked fury outside Londons US Embassy.
Police stepped in to separate the chanting groups amid threats of violence from both sides.
US leaders were branded murderers by radicals, who warned vengeance attacks were guaranteed and shouted: "USA, you will pay."
Abu Muaz, 28, from east London, said: "It is only a matter of time before another atrocity - the West is the enemy.
Meanwhile, EDL members chanted USA, USA as Muslims knelt to pray for bin Laden at the opposite end of the highly-secured embassy, in central London.
An ambulance was called to the scene amid reports that one of the extremists had been attacked.
The pro-bin Laden event was organised by controversial preacher Anjem Choudary.
The former UK leader of the outlawed al-Muhajiroun and member of the poppy-burning Muslims Against Crusades extremist group called on the US to return bin Ladens body to relatives.
Britain has followed the US in placing its embassies, diplomatic missions and military bases around the world on heightened alert in recent days.
The US said the decision to drop bin Ladens body into the North Arabian Sea was taken to avoid creating a shrine for the dead al Qaida chief.
An EDL member slipped through police lines to unveil an effigy of bin Laden in the middle of the 300-strong group of extremist Muslims.
It prompted screams of USA, burn in hell and Obama, burn in hell from angry protesters.
