Protests continue as U.S. embassy in Tunis burns


The violent protests in the Middle East, fuelled by an anti-Muslim movie, have spread with thousands of protesters storming the German embassy in Sudan on Friday. They attacked the facade and tore the flag down to replace it with a black Islamist flag.

In Tunis, protesters jumped the wall of the U.S. embassy, breaking windows and setting trees on fire. A large fire was seen burning inside the compound while police fired tear gas at the hundreds who were demonstrating.

Earlier this week, the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya, as protesters attacked the American consulate. The U.S. embassy in Egypt was also stormed on Thursday. A crowd of 300 set fire to a KFC in Tripoli.
