KHARTOUM, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- At least three people were killed as Sudanese protesters on Friday afternoon tried to near the U.S. embassy in the capital city of Khartoum after earlier violent rallies outside the German and British embassies buildings, Xinhua reporters said, quoting medical sources on scene.
The three dead were reportedly all protesters who were hit by a police vehicle as they attempted to reach the U.S. embassy.
Witnesses said that nearly 10,000 protesters, furious about an allegedly U.S.-commissioned anti-Islam movie that insults Prophet Mohammed, were heading to the U.S. embassy, which has already been densely guarded by Sudanese troops and policemen. Some U.S. marine soldiers are also seen protecting the embassy building from being reached by angry protesters.
Earlier in the day, thousands of Sudanese protesters stormed the embassy of Germany in Khartoum.
The massive protests in Sudan followed the suit of similar ones across the Muslim countries in the region in the past two days.
Part of the German embassy complex were torched and badly damaged, Xinhua correspondent said, adding that the Germany flag was lowered and replaced with a black Islamist one.
A huge gray cloud of smoke could be seen surrounding the complex, as the police fired teargas to disperse the protesters -- some of them scaling the roof of the German embassy and others attacking its facade. Violent protest also spread to the British embassy nearby.
Some protesters even demanded the Sudanese government to expel the diplomatic missions of Germany and the United States from the country.
The controversial film, "Innocence of Muslims," has on Tuesday triggered an attack on a group of U.S. diplomats in eastern Libya, which killed U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three embassy staffers.
