US embassies attacked as anti-Islam film protests widen

Protesters angered by a film made in the US and mocking Islam have attacked Western embassies in Tunisia and Sudan.

Protesters in Khartoum entered the US compound, while the German and UK embassies were also attacked. The US compound in Tunis was also breached by protesters, who started a fire in the car park as police fired shots.
