Sudan: Police shoot at protesters trying to climb U.S. Embassy wall

By Aya Batrawy and Lee Keath

LAST UPDATED: 06:10 a.m. HST, Sep 14, 2012

CAIRO » Witnesses say Sudanese police have opened fire on protesters trying to climb the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum.

The witnesses say several thousands of Sudanese were protesting outside the embassy, trying to storm it in anger over an obscure file produced in the United States that denigrated the Prophet Muhammad.

It was not immediately clear if any protesters got into the embassy.

The witnesses said at least three protesters were hurt, seen motionless on the ground. There was no immediate confirmation whether they were dead.

The attack came as protests against the film spread around the Middle East and other Muslim countries, from Tunisia to Pakistan.

You are correct...these idiots that riot are nothing more than hooligans, who take their direction from rogue clerics who preach violence instead of respect

The "Prophet" Muhammad needs no help from "infidels" to be denigrated. His followers do that very well.

Amazing how this rag monopoly Star Advertiser features Augie T when the Middle-East, and possibly soon America, burns.  Clear to me that SA tries to keep us uninformed and dumb on most important matters in order to maintain a low-informed populous...heads buried in the sand.  If you don't know the problems living in a false "state-of-bliss", you tend to vote for incumbents.  Now I get it...

I thought that the feature on Augie was informative and interesting. I would hate to read a paper that was so one track minded that it only featured a bunch of misinformed idiots making a mockery of the very prophet Muhammad that they claim to believe in.
