TUNIS, Sept 12 Tunisian police fired teargas and
rubber bullets into the air on Wednesday to disperse a protest
over a U.S.-made film depicting the Prophet Mohammad near the
U.S. Embassy in the capital Tunis, a Reuters reporter said.
Around 200 protesters, many of whom with long beards and
wearing robes, threw rocks at the police, burned U.S. flags and
chanted slogans such as "Obama, Obama, we are here for the
triumph of Islam" and "Mohammad is the master of creation".
Police chased the protesters away while Tunisian army
soldiers guarded the embassy building. There were no immediate
reports of casualties.
