German, British embassy stormed by protestors [Sudan]

Sudanese police have used tear gas against protestors at the German embassy in Khartoum in an attempt to quell outrage over an anti-Islam film.

Sudan’s police force fired tear gas on Friday in a bid to stop more than 5,000 demonstrators protesting against an anti-Islam film from storming the German and British embassies.

Protestors threw stones at the two neighboring embassies in Khartoum before they stormed the main gates of the German embassy. They attacked its facade and tore down the flag, replacing it with a black Islamist one before torching the building, one witness said.
