Via Globe And Mail:

Thousands of demonstrators furious at a film they say insults the Prophet Mohammad stormed the German embassy in Sudan Friday, attacking its facade and tearing down the flag to replace it with a black Islamist one.

Around 5,000 protesters in the Sudanese capital angry over the film on Friday stormed the embassies of Britain and Germany, which was torched and badly damaged, an AFP reporter said.

State-backed Islamist scholars in Sudan had called a mass protest after Muslim prayers on Friday and an Islamist group threatened to attack the U.S. embassy in the capital Khartoum. The government also criticised Germany for tolerating criticism of the Prophet.
