The United States is outraged by the attack on the US embassy in Belgrade and will ask the UN Security Council to condemn it, US Ambassador to the United Nations Zalmay Khalilzad said on Thursday.

"I'm outraged by the mob attack against the US embassy in Belgrade," he told reporters ahead of a previously scheduled Security Council meeting.

"I'm going to go in to the Security Council and ask for a unanimous statement to be issued expressing the council's outrage, condemning the attack and also reminding the Serb government of its responsibility to protect diplomatic facilities.
