Two protesters got on to the roof of the Bahraini embassy in London on Monday and unveiled a banner in support of Abdul Hadi al-Khawaja, a jailed activist on hunger strike.
The pair also waved the Bahrain flag from the top of the building in the plush Belgrave Square, which houses several embassies.
"We were made aware at 1:35pm (1235 GMT) of two protesters on the roof of the Bahraini embassy in Belgrave Square," a police spokesman told AFP.
"Officers are in attendance and local road closures are in place."
Al-Khawaja, a Shia activist, was sentenced with other opposition activists to life in jail over an alleged plot to topple the Sunni monarchy during a month-long protest a year ago.
