LEBANON – Security forces opened fire in the northeastern Lebanese
city of Tripoli, killing one person after a crowd angry over the film
set fire to a KFC and a Hardee’s restaurant. About 25 people were
wounded in the melee, including 18 policemen who were hit with stones
and glass.


SUDAN – Several hundred protesters stormed the German Embassy in the
capital, Khartoum, burning a car parked behind its gates and trash cans.
Police fired tear gas, pushing the protesters outside the embassy’s
gates. There appeared to be no injuries to embassy staff and no apparent
damage to the building. Most protesters dispersed, but a group marched
to protest at the nearby British Embassy.


YEMEN – Security forces shot live rounds in the air and fired tear
gas at a crowd of around 2,000 protesters trying to march to the U.S.
Embassy in the capital, Sanaa. Police kept the crowd about a block away
from the embassy. Friday’s demonstration came a day after hundreds
stormed the embassy compound and burned the American flag.


EGYPT – Riot police clashed with hundreds of protesters blocks away
from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, as the president broadcast an appeal to
Muslims to protect embassies and tried to patch up strained relations
with Washington. After weekly prayers, a crowd in Cairo’s Tahrir Square
tore up an American flag, and waved a black, Islamist flag. When
protesters tried to move toward the embassy, ranks of police confronted
them, firing tear gas.


IRAN – Thousands shouted ‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel’ in
Tehran in a demonstration after Friday prayers. Some burned the American
and Israeli flags. State TV says similar protests were held in other
Iranian cities.


BAHRAIN – More than 2,000 protesters chanted against the film and
burned American and Israeli flags after Friday prayers in a Shiite
mosque in Diraz, outside the capital, Manama. Security forces were
absent, even though the area is a hotbed of opposition in Bahrain’s
19-month Shiite-led uprising against the Sunni ruling system.
Separately, Bahrain’s Interior Ministry ordered media regulators to
attempt to block access to the film clip in the Gulf kingdom.


IRAQ – Hundreds demonstrated in Baghdad’s northern Sunni neighborhood
of Azamaiyah, some shouting: ‘No, no America! No, no to Israel,’ and,
‘We are ready to sacrifice ourselves for our Prophet.’ Dozens also
marched in Baghdad’s Sadr City, a poor Shiite area in the capital’s
northeast. In the southern city of Basra, about 1,000 took to the
streets and burned the American and Israeli flags. One banner said:
‘Freedom doesn’t mean offending two billion Muslims.’


BANGLADESH – Protesters break through police barricade in Dhaka.


TUNISIA – A crowd of several thousand demonstrators protested outside
the US embassy in Tunis. Police respond to stone-throwing with tear
gas. An AP reporter on the scene witnessed several people overcome by
intense clouds of gas. An army helicopter flew overhead while armored
vehicles protected the embassy.


ISRAEL – The Israeli police say about 400 people marched toward the
U.S. consulate in east Jerusalem in protest over the prophet film.
Demonstrators threw bottles and stones at police, who responded by
firing stun grenades. Four protesters were arrested and the crowd was
prevented from reaching the U.S. consulate.


WEST BANK – In the city of Nablus, about 200 people demonstrated
against the film as Muslim clerics throughout the territory preached
against it in Friday sermons.


SYRIA – About 200 protesters waved the Syrian flag and shouted
anti-American slogans outside the long-closed U.S. Embassy in Damascus.
The crowd held banners saying: ‘He who curses the Prophet doesn’t seek
democracy’ and ‘a nation whose Prophet is Mohammad, would never kneel
down.’ The U.S. embassy has been closed since February because of the
country’s bloody conflict that has killed about 23,000 people.


AFGHANISTAN – About 1,500 protested in the eastern city of Jalalabad,
shouting ‘Death to America’ and urged President Hamid Karzai to cut
relations with the U.S.


PAKISTAN – Hundreds of hardline Muslims held peaceful protests
against the film throughout Pakistan, shouting slogans and carrying
banners criticizing the U.S. and those involved in the film. Police in
Islamabad set up barricades and razor wire to prevent protesters from
getting to the diplomatic enclave, where the U.S. Embassy and many other
foreign missions are located. Protests were also held in Karachi,
Peshawar and Lahore, where protesters shouted ‘Down with America’ and
some burned the U.S. flag. About 200 policemen and barbed wire ringed
the U.S. Consulate in Lahore.


TURKEY – Hundreds of people gathered in Istanbul’s Beyazit Square to
protest the prophet film. The protest was organized by Turkey’s main
Islamist political party, Saadet.


MALAYSIA – About 20 protesters held a peaceful demonstration outside
the U.S. Embassy in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. They briefly
shouted ‘Allahu akbar!’ or God is great, and handed reporters a letter
addressed to the American ambassador expressing anger over the movie and
calling for greater respect for religions.


KUWAIT: Kuwaiti police push back hundreds of demonstrators protesting
against a film deemed offensive to Islam near the U.S. embassy in
Kuwait City


More death and destruction:


INDIA: Thousands protested in the volatile Indian-controlled
region of Kashmir, burning U.S. flags and calling President Barack Obama
a “terrorist.” The top government cleric reportedly demanded Americans
leave immediately. In the southern city of Chennai, protesters threw
stones at the U.S. Consulate, shattering some windows and burning an
effigy of Obama. Police quickly cleared the area, arresting more than
100 protesters.



QATAR: About 1,000 protesters gathered outside the heavily
guarded U.S. Embassy in the capital, Doha, chanting anti-US slogans and
calling for Washington to remove its military presence from the
strategic Gulf nation. An influential cleric reminded worshipers that the American
government had no role in the film and that “loyalty to the Prophet is
not expressed by attacking embassies.”




GREAT BRITAIN: In London, around 250 protesters marched noisily but
peacefully through Britain’s capital to the U.S. embassy. The group,
which called itself the “Defenders of The Prophet,” held placards
denouncing the U.S. and perceived Western imperialism.



TURKEY: Hundreds of people gathered in Istanbul’s Beyazit Square
to protest the film. The protest was organized by Turkey’s main Islamist
political party, Saadet.



NIGERIA: Soldiers opened fire to drive away young Muslims
protesting the film in the central city of Jos, as demonstrators
elsewhere in the county’s north burned a U.S. flag. The youths, some wearing white shirts that read “To Hell With
America, To Hell With Israel,” chanted slogans and called for the arrest
of the makers of the film. It was not clear whether anyone was injured
in the gunfire or the melee.




NIGER: Muslims attacked a Christian school in the city of
Zinder, setting fire to the school’s door and student bunks and
destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary before security forces
intervened.



The NY Times has even more:


Some of the most serious violence targeted
the compound housing the German and British Embassies in Khartoum, the
Sudanese capital, causing minor damage to the British property but major
fire damage to the German one. The foreign ministers of both countries
strongly protested the assault, which The Associated Press said had been
instigated by a prominent sheik exhorting protesters to storm the
German Embassy to avenge what he called anti-Muslim graffiti on Berlin
mosques.


The police fired tear gas to repulse
attacks in Khartoum, where about 5,000 demonstrators had massed, news
reports said, before they moved on to the United States Embassy on the
outskirts of the capital.


In Tunis, North Africa: The United
States Embassy was assaulted at midday by protesters who smashed windows
and set fires before security forces routed them in violent clashes
that left at least 3 dead and 28 hurt. Witnesses and officials said no
Americans were hurt and most had left earlier.


The worst damage was inflicted on the
American Cooperative School of Tunis, a highly regarded institution
that, despite its name, catered mostly to the children of non-American
expatriates, nearly half of whom work for the African Development Bank.
School officials, who had sent the 650 students home early, said a few
protesters scaled the fence and dismantled monitoring cameras, followed
by 300 to 400 others, some of them local residents, who looted
everything including 700 laptop computers, musical instruments and the
safe in the director’s office, and then set the building on fire.


“It’s ransacked,” the director, Allan
Bredy, said in a telephone interview. “We were thinking it was something
the Tunisia government would keep under control. We had no idea they
would allow things to go as wildly as they did.”


The school’s director of security, David
Santiago, said a group of staff members formed a posse armed with
baseball bats to chase lingering looters away hours after the assault.
“Our elementary school library is burning as we speak,” he said angrily
as he and his colleagues sought to assess the damage. “It’s complete
chaos.”


Palestine: Joined demonstrations after Friday Prayer in the Gaza Strip. Since
there is no American diplomatic representation in Gaza, the main
gathering took place in Gaza City, outside the Parliament building,
where American and Israeli flags were placed on the ground for the
crowds to stomp. Palestinians also clashed with Israeli security forces
in Jerusalem and held protests in the West Bank.


Cairo: Said
protests that first flared Tuesday grew in scope on Friday, with
demonstrators throwing rocks and gasoline bombs near the American
Embassy and the police firing tear gas. The Egyptian news media said
more than 220 people had been injured in clashes so far.


Benghazi,
Libya: Where J. Christopher Stevens, the American ambassador, and three other
Americans
were killed Tuesday, militias fired rockets at what they
thought were American drones overhead, prompting the government to
temporarily close the airport as a precaution. The bodies of Mr. Stevens
and the others killed in the Libya attack were returned to the United
States on Friday.


In Lebanon: Where Pope
Benedict XVI was visiting, one person was killed and 25 were injured as
protesters attacked restaurants. There was also turmoil in Yemen,
Bangladesh, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, India, Pakistan and Iraq, and
demonstrations in Malaysia. In Nigeria, troops fired into the air to
disperse protesters marching on the city of Jos, Reuters reported. In
Syria, about 200 protesters chanted anti-American slogans outside the
long-closed American Embassy in Damascus, news reports said.


Sinai, Egypt: A
group of Bedouins stormed an international peacekeepers’ camp and set
fire to an observation tower, according to Al Ahram Online, a
state-owned, English-language Web site. Three people, two Colombians and
one Egyptian, were injured in the ensuing clashes.


In Yemen: Baton-wielding
security forces backed by water cannons blocked streets near the
American Embassy a day after protesters breached the outer security
perimeter there, and officials said two people were killed in clashes
with the police. Still, a group of several dozen protesters gathered
near the diplomatic post, carrying placards and shouting slogans.


In Iraq: Where the
heavily fortified American Embassy sits on the banks of the Tigris River
inside Baghdad’s Green Zone and is out of reach to most Iraqis,
thousands protested after Friday Prayer in Sunni and Shiite cities
alike.


Raising banners with Islamic slogans and
denouncing the United States and Israel, Iraqis called for the expulsion
of American diplomats from the country and demanded that the American
government apologize for the incendiary film and take legal action
against its creators.


In Australia: Australia became the latest nation to cope with protests. Carrying signs that read: “Obama, Obama,
we like Osama” and “Behead All Those Who Insult the Prophet,”
protesters
in Sydney gathered on the steps of the consulate.


The demonstration turned violent after protesters were pushed back from the building by police.


Authorities used tear gas and police dogs
to disperse protesters who threw bottles and shoes — considered a grave
insult among Muslims, according to witnesses and police video.


At least four people were injured,
including a police officer who was hit in the face with a bottle,
according to witnesses and authorities.


Here’s a breakdown of events Saturday around the globe:


In Egypt’s northern Sinai,
a large number of security forces backed by tanks regained control of a
base housing an international peacekeeping force that was breached
Friday by Islamist militants, state-run EGYnews reported Saturday.


The militants carrying automatic weapons
burned trucks and a watch tower on the base. The armed clashes injured
at least four troops and an Islamist Bedouin.


The 1,500-troop mission has supervised the security of the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty since 1979.


In the Egyptian capital of Cairo,
large numbers of police were patrolling the streets following clashes
shortly after dawn Saturday between protesters and plain-clothes
security officers.


In Afghanistan, the
Taliban claimed responsibility for an attack on a joint U.S.-British
base in Helmand province that left two U.S. troops dead, saying the
attack was in response to the film. The attack follows a call by the
Taliban on its fighters to take revenge for the film by increasing
assaults on NATO troops.


In Tunisia, authorities
warned Saturday the death toll may climb following Friday’s attack on
the U.S. Embassy in Tunis that left two dead.


“This initial toll might get worse as two
of the wounded people are in critical condition,” the state-run TAP news
agency reported.


In Sudan’s capital, Khartoum,
the German and British embassies shored up their security after
protesters managed to get inside a compound that is shared by both
diplomatic missions, according to the foreign ministers of both nations.


U.S. calls for embassy evacuations – where exactly are these folks supposed to go?


WASHINGTON
(Reuters) – The United States ordered non-essential staff to leave its
embassies in Tunisia and Sudan on Saturday after both diplomatic posts
were attacked and Khartoum rejected a U.S. request to send a platoon of
Marines to bolster security at its mission there.


“Given
the security situation in Tunis and Khartoum, the U.S. State Department
has ordered the departure of all family members and non-emergency
personnel from both posts, and issued parallel travel warnings to
American citizens,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in
a statement.


The
U.S. embassies in Tunis and Khartoum were attacked on Friday by
protesters infuriated by a widely disseminated anti-Islamic film, made
in the United States, that insults the Prophet Mohammad and has provoked
a violent reaction across the Muslim world.


Four
people were killed and 46 injured in the assault on the U.S. Embassy in
Tunis, according to a hospital official in the city.

The Middle East is burning!

....Meanwhile exactly where is our illustrious leader during all this? Entertaining Letterman, Beyonce, and sports figures... and campaigning!

    And our "leader" is afraid to stand up and defend free speech! I would say that the pathetically filmed and edited movie "denigrating" the false prophet Muhammed was no crime at all. What IS a crime are the hundreds and thousands of Christians who have been pursecuted and even killed for their Christian faith by murderous followers of Muhammed! Wouldn't you?!

    The true peace loving Islamic Sharia are gathering up religious leaders to study together the Qa'ran to try to understand why The iatola Kolmanie used the Qa'ran to insite terrorism, and how this can all be changed. The way the Islamic countries are behaving is like a son that is having a hissie fit. Mom learned to let him, and walk away from him. I think this is happening because Obama, the Muslim, is using our Tax Dollars to pay these people to do this, their only means of making a living. Ask any Photo Journalist about how people act when the cameras are on them = TV. Obama's money and cameras.

    This is going on in all these countries for more reasons then the film. It is just an excuse to cause havoc, but not actually admitting it is due to terrorist reasons.

    I hope the leaders of these countrues will do a better job of standing up for their people then Obama did for those 4 Americans that died last Tuesday.

    All I can say is that i sincerely HOPE we do not have to pay for all of the repairs to the schools and other buildings. And we should not rebuild or reopen our consulate sor embassies in those nations. Period.

    Let's save some tax payer dollars for a change, embassies and consulates are not as necessary as they used to be, so let's just close all of the ones in rioting nations and leave it at that.
