BEIJING, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- Muslims worldwide continued Saturday to protest against an American film that was deemed an insult to Prophet Mohammed.
In central Sydney, Australia, hundreds of Muslims gathered to protest against the controversial film.
Local police deployed dogs and capsicum spray to disperse the crowd, and the demonstrations turned violent. At least one injured protester was seen to be taken away by ambulance when shouting "Allahu Akbar (God is great)".
In Srinagar city, the summer capital of Indian-controlled Kashmir, students took to the streets, chanting anti-U.S. and anti-Israel slogans and waving placards and banners to denounce the film.
In central Cairo, clashes continued around the U.S. embassy with hundreds of protesters hurling stones to the police. The Health Ministry said 27 people were injured, bringing the number to 251 since protests erupted Tuesday.
Police have arrested 94 protesters and used teargas to disperse those surrounding the embassy, according to state TV.
The protests also spread to the U.S. consulate in Alexandria and the headquarters of international peacekeeping force in north Sinai.
At least four peacekeepers were injured when gunmen attacked the headquarters of the international peacekeeping force, a peacekeeping official told Xinhua.
