Several dead as anti-Islam film protests widen


Violent protests have continued across the Middle East in response to an American amateur film seen as insulting to Islam despite an appeal for calm by some Arab leaders.

Crowds have attacked and attempted to storm the British, German and American embassies in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum.

There have also been demonstrations in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Libya, Lebanon, Gaza, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iraq, India and Indonesia.
