Protesters burn US flag in Cairo in protest over film

Protesters have breached the wall of the US embassy in Cairo and torn down a US flag to voice their anger about a US-made film which they say insults the Prophet Muhammad.

The flag, which was flying at half mast to mark the 9/11 attacks, was replaced by an Islamist banner.

Among the film's producers is said to be a pastor who burnt copies of the Koran earlier this year.
