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

    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 teargas 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."

    This is getting more and more scary by the day. Things seem to be bubbly over across the whole mideast. Not good.

    No - there are more stories internationally now about the failure of middle eastern policy... then again it must be nothing because your President is more busy off fundraising in Vegas and NYC.

    It's also incredibly sad given what had started out to be so promising...
