Embassy Attacks

Riots in Cairo

Tear gas, rocks and the whole works


Egyptians angry at a film they saw as blasphemous to the Prophet Mohammad clashed on Friday for a third day with police blocking the way to the U.S. embassy after protesters climbed its walls and tore down the American flag earlier this week.

"God is Greatest" and "There is no god but God", one group near the front of the clashes chanted as police in riot gear fired tear gas and threw stones in a street leading from Tahrir Square to the embassy nearby.
