Protests erupt in 10 countries across the Middle East, Africa and Asia as anger builds over anti-Muslim film created in the US.
A large fire could be seen burning inside the compound. Police fired tear gas 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.”
Outside the city, thousands of protesters arrived in buses and cars to gather on the main street near the heavily-fortified US embassy. They lit several fires, as police fired tear gas to disperse them.
