Gamma‐ray bursts (GRBs) have long been considered as candidates of ultrahigh‐energy cosmic rays (UHECRs). We investigate the signatures of CR proton acceleration in the GRBs by consistently taking into account their hadronic and electromagnetic interactions. We discuss the implications of our findings for high‐energy gamma ray observations with the recently launched Fermi Gamma‐ray Space Telescope.
