Tunis Protesters Attack US Embassy


Protesters attack the US embassy in Tunis, British and German embassies in Khartoum, and a KFC restaurant is torched in Tripoli.

Protesters descend on the US embassy in Tunis






(



Protesters have entered the US embassy in the Tunisian capital Tunis in the latest violence sparked by an anti-Muslim film.

A large fire could be seen burning inside the compound. Police fired tear gas at the crowds, who broke windows and set fire to trees.

In the Sudanese capital Khartoum, some 5,000 protesters attacked the British and German embassies.

Demonstrators broke into the German compound, pulling down the German flag and flying a black Islamic flag above the building. They also smashed windows and started a fire in front of the main gate.

Police fired tear gas at the protesters, who then moved on to the nearby British embassy in Khartoum East.

Britain's Foreign Office said: "We can confirm an ongoing demonstration outside the British Embassy in Khartoum. Sudanese police are at the scene."

Outside the city, thousands of protesters arrived in buses and cars to gather on the main street near the heavily-fortified US embassy. They lit several fires, as police fired tear gas to disperse them.

Unrest has spread across the Middle East, provoked by a US-made video depicting the Prophet Mohammed having sex, calling for massacres, and as a homosexual.

In Lebanon, hundreds of protesters chanting anti-American slogans set fire to a KFC restaurant in the northern city of Tripoli. One demonstrator was killed in the violence.

Locals watching the attack said people were shouting: "We don't want the Pope" and "No more insults (to Islam)".

It came as Pope Benedict began a three-day visit to Lebanon.
Protesters clash with police in Cairo
Meanwhile, hundreds of protesters clashed with police guarding the US embassy in Cairo.

They attacked a 15ft-high concrete wall built by police across the road to the fortified US compound near Tahrir Square. TV pictures showed demonstrators throwing stones, and police throwing stones back.

In Yemen, security forces clashed with hundreds of protesters near the US embassy in Sanaa, a day after demonstrators stormed the compound.

Reports said US marines had flown into Sanaa's international airport on Thursday to bolster the embassy's security.

At least one person died and 15 were injured during Thursday's demonstration. Yemen's President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi condemned the attack.

In Bangladesh, some 10,000 protesters burned American and Israeli flags and chanted "God is Great" and "Smash the black hands of Jews" as they tried to march to the US embassy in the capital Dhaka.
One person died and 15 were injured in Yemen
They were stopped by hundreds of armed police and armoured personnel carriers.

In Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim-majority nation, 250 riot police guarded the US embassy in Jakarta as some 450 people protested outside. Some carried banners reading: "We condemn the insult against Allah's messenger" and "There is no God but Allah".

Britain's Defence Secretary Philip Hammond has raised concerns about the potential for the unrest to spread to Afghanistan. In a newspaper interview, he said security is being boosted around British bases.

And in Afghanistan, hundreds of protesters took to the streets, setting fire to an effigy of US President Barack Obama and demanding the death of the filmmaker they say insulted the Prophet Mohammed.

Clerics in the Shinwari tribe called for a $100,000 bounty on the head of the producer of the film during protests in Nangarhar province.

The violence followed Tuesday night's storming of the US Consulate and a safe house in Benghazi, Libya, in which the US ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and three other American officials were killed.

President Barack Obama said the perpetrators would be tracked down and ordered two destroyers to head to the Libyan coast.

Eastern Libya's deputy interior minister, Wanis el Sharef, said the film protests were a cover for a violent assault planned to coincide with the 11th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks.

So he should be Badboy, but it also highlights that anything goes on the internet. Google owns youtube and there is no way youtube is monitored. Apparently if you know where to look, the photos of the Duchess of Cambridge are on there as well. The Owner of the magazine is not repentent she will earn ten times the fine, but the people of France do not agree with what she has done.

Film protests: US orders Tunisia and Sudan withdrawal
The US State Department has now advised US citizens against all travel to Tunisia

Anti-Islam film protests



  • What explains the protests?
  • Q&A: Anti-Islam film
  • Protests in pictures
  • Libyans speak out

The United States has ordered non-essential diplomatic staff and their families to leave Sudan and Tunisia.

In a statement, the state department also urged US citizens in Tunisia to make their way out of the country.

The US embassies in the Tunisian and Sudanese capitals have both been attacked in the wave of anti-US protests in the Muslim world over an anti-Islam film made in the US.

Earlier, Sudan refused to allow the US to send Marines to protect its embassy.

Sudanese officials said the country's security forces were capable of providing protection to the embassy.

Three people were killed when the US embassy was attacked in Khartoum on Friday. The German and UK missions were also singled out by protesters.

The state department said the Sudanese government had "taken some steps to limit the activities of terrorist groups", but that elements remained and had threatened to attack Western interests, the BBC's Paul Adams in Washington reports.

Americans were also warned against all travel to Tunisia, after two people lost their lives during attacks on the embassy in Tunis and a neighbouring American school.

"US citizens remaining in Tunisia should use extreme caution and avoid demonstrations," it said.

The Canadian government announced on Sunday it was closing its embassies in Sudan, Libya and Egypt for the day as a precautionary measure.

Several other people have been killed across the Middle East and north Africa since the protests over the film erupted on Tuesday. The US ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and three other US officials died when the consulate building in Benghazi was attacked and set on fire.

“Start Quote



We need to reflect the true identity of Muslims, how peaceful they are, and talk to the Western media about the true heart of the Muslims, that they condemn violence”
End Quote Hisham Qandil Egyptian Prime Minister

  • Full transcript: Hisham Qandil interview

The US and Canadian announcements came as Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula called for fresh attacks against Western embassies.

"What has happened is a great event, and these efforts should come together in one goal, which is to expel the embassies of America from the lands of the Muslims," the group said in a statement, according to the Associated Press.
'Unacceptable' insult
Earlier on Saturday, Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil said in an interview with BBC Arabic that the US must do all it can to stop people insulting Islam.

Mr Qandil said it was "unacceptable to insult our Prophet" but also not right for peaceful protests to turn violent.

"Egyptians, Arabs, Muslims - we need to reflect the true identity of Muslims, how peaceful they are, and talk to the Western media about the true heart of the Muslims, that they condemn violence," said Mr Qandil.

He also called on the US, and other governments, to "take the necessary measures to ensure insulting billions of people, one-and-a-half billion people and their beliefs, does not happen and people pay for what they do."
Low-budget production
Meanwhile, a man suspected of being involved in making in the film has been questioned by US investigators over whether he has broken the terms of his probation for a previous fraud conviction.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula has denied involvement in the film, clips of which have been posted online.

Nakoula was escorted from his home near Los Angeles by probation officers
The exact origin of the film and motivation behind it are still unclear and much misleading information has been circulated about its production.

The original posting of a 14-minute trailer for the film on YouTube came from an account linked to the name 'sambacile'. Clips have also been shown on Arabic TV channels.

No film-maker by the name of Sam Bacile has been traced, and the US authorities suspect Nakoula Basseley Nakoula of using the pseudonym.

Nakoula, who has a criminal record for bank fraud and drug offences, volunteered for questioning and was escorted from his home by officials early on Saturday, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The conditions of his probation are believed to include not using the internet without the authorisation of his probation officer or assuming aliases.

However, the right to freedom of speech is enshrined in the first amendment of the American constitution and while the video has been widely condemned in the US, the filmmakers are not believed to have committed any punishable crime, the BBC's Alistair Leithead in Los Angeles reports.

Nakoula was released by police after questioning and may have gone into hiding, the Associated Press reports.

Any portrayal of the Prophet is considered blasphemous to Muslims, and the film, a low-budget, amateurish production called Innocence of Muslims, depicts him as a womaniser and leader of a group of bloodthirsty men.

It also touched on themes of paedophilia and homosexuality.
Calls for calm
Angry protests have also erupted in several other countries including Yemen, Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, Pakistan and Turkey.

Australian police held off protesters attempting to reach the American consulate in Sydney
There were clashes between Muslim protesters and police in Sydney, Australia on Saturday over a wide area of the city centre.

Police used pepper spray to disperse the crowds as they tried to enter the US consulate building. A number of arrests were made during the clashes.

On Saturday, insurgents attacked Nato's heavily fortified Camp Bastion base in southern Afghanistan, killing at least two US Marines. The Taliban told the BBC it had carried out the attack in revenge for the film.

In Belgium, police in Antwerp said around 120 people were detained after clashes, blamed on a group called Sharia4Belgium.

The mostly young protesters chanted slogans such as "Obama go to hell" and "Hollywood go to hell", Reuters news agency reports. Those held were expected to be released after identity checks, a spokesman said.

Western and Middle Eastern leaders have called for calm.

Grand Mufti Sheik Abdel-Aziz al-Sheik, the highest religious authority in Saudi Arabia, said Muslims should "denounce it without anger".

"Muslims should not be dragged by wrath and anger to shift from legitimate to forbidden action and by this, they will, unknowingly, fulfil some aims of the film," the Associated Press news agency quoted him as saying.

The European Union has urged leaders in Arab and Muslim countries to "call immediately for peace and restraint".

And now we'll have the apologists telling us that Islam means "peace". It doesn't. It means "submission" and the radicals are getting more dangerous by the day. Where are all the moderate Muslims, why aren't they speaking out?

They were also burning Israeli flags outrside the Embassy - it was on the BBC news - and Israel isn't even involved! Which makes me think that this is not about a film at all.

And where do they get the flags from? If somebody came up to me and said, right we are having a spontaneous protest against Poland in 15 minutes, bring a Polish flag to burn - well where would you get one? They don't exactly sell them in WH Smiths. So where do the flags come from? It's clearly been premeditated and it's nothing to do with a film. It is a political act of aggression.

I agree Iris, a lot of these riots are organised , but it's like "Now is the summer of our discontent", (sorry William )

and a vast social unrest which is the reason these riots have exploded . The West is blamed and not without reason. The

poor have seen no improvement in their lives , only the rich getting richer , countries like Iraq , Libya, and Afghanistan

invaded by the Americans and British and for what???

Even Russia had a vast army of marching protesters yesterday against Putin, but it was peaceful , the people of the Middle East are more excitable .

The UN is a waste of space and now that America cannot rule the World anymore maybe they will aaccept that fact.

I had been wondering about this myself, Iris. I don't know where I'd get any kind of flag if a spontaneous demonstration were to take place, neither Union flag or the flag of any other country. The film is being blamed for this, but I think it's all being co-ordinated. One Egyptian Coptic Christian is supposedly behind the making of the film, so what has Israel, Germany and the USA got to do with it and why demonstrate as far away as Australia?

Israel and Iran are locking Horns, The U.S. has said it will step in if Iran attacks Israel, Germany is probably seen as the

villain in the Euro crisis, forcing these austerity measures on Countries needing a bail-out which is making the situation worse and increasing unemployment , Australia is probably along for the ride.

Don't forget Tunis and Khartoum , the Middle East is in chaos, all it needs now is for an Oil Refinery to be blown up.

American economy boosted by flag sales to Middle East



Exports of the stars and stripes have rocketed by 343% over the last week and manufacturers say they are ‘struggling to keep up’.

“It’s like the 4th of July,” says Mitch Purcell of The Patriot Flag Company, Oregon. “I mean our orders have gone through the roof. We’re working 24hr shifts just to keep up.”

“This is great news for Obama,” says political journalist Jenny Bone.

“At such a crucial time for his election strategy, American products made in America by Americans being so sought-after overseas really helps him prove the effectiveness of his political and economic agenda.”
