Hardline Muslims barged into a high-rise building housing the Danish Embassy on Friday to protest the publication of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad.
They then tore and burnt the country's white and red flag.
The rowdy protest was one of the first in the world's most populous Muslim nation against the 12 cartoons, which first appeared in September in a Danish newspaper.
They were reprinted in several other European newspapers this week in a gesture of press freedom.
