A man stomped on the Quran outside Iraq's embassy in Stockholm on Thursday but did not ignite the book, AFP reported.

This came hours after protesters stormed Sweden's Baghdad embassy over a possible burning of the holy Quran.

Salwan Momika, 37, stomped and kicked the Quran but left the protest without burning pages of the book -- as he had done less than a month earlier at a similar protest outside Stockholm's main mosque.
