CAIRO (AP) - Several hundred Sudanese protesters have stormed the German Embassy in the capital Khartoum, burning a car parked behind its gates and trash cans.
Police fired tear gas, pushing the protesters outside the embassy's gates. There appeared to be no immediate damage to the embassy's staff or building.
Most protesters dispersed, but a group marched to protest at the nearby British Embassy.
It comes after calls on state radio by a prominent Muslim cleric to protest after weekly Friday prayers in the capital against an anti-Islam film produced in the United States that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad. Friday has seen dozens of protests across the Muslim world over the film.
