CAIRO, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- At least 224 people were injured Thursday in clashes in front of the U.S. embassy in the Egyptian capital of Cairo, official news agency MENA reported, quoting the health ministry.

Clashes continue Thursday evening between protesters against a U.S. anti-Islam movie and the security forces in front of the embassy.

The protesters threw fire balls and stones at the security members, who responded with huge amount of tear gas and led to the chocking of some people, including even some passers-by.

The Egyptian Ambulance Authority said most of the injured people are being treated on the spot while several injured protesters and soldiers have been transferred to the neighboring governmental hospitals.
