KHARTOUM, Sept 14 (Reuters) - Sudanese police fired teargas on Friday to stop demonstrators approaching the U.S. embassy outside Khartoum in a protest against a film that demeaned the Prophet Mohammad, a Reuters witness said.
More than 5,000 protesters arrived in busses and cars to gather on the main street near the heavily-fortified embassy compound. They started setting several fires on a square near the embassy, which is set away from the main street. by anthony.derosa 9/14/2012 1:51:21 PM
