U.S. sending Marines to Sudan to bolster embassy security

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is sending a platoon of Marines to Sudan to bolster security at the U.S. embassy in Khartoum, an American official told Reuters on Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The Pentagon, responding to a wave of anti-American protests sweeping the Middle East, has taken similar steps in Libya and Yemen as fury over a film that insults the Prophet Mohammad tore across the region.
