Brussels: The European Union (EU) Friday condemned the attacks against German and British embassies in Khartoum.

"We condemn it in the strongest terms. This is unacceptable, and it is against all the rules of the civilized world. Nothing justifies these kinds of attacks," Xinhua quoted European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso as saying.

Thousands of Sudanese protesters stormed the embassies of Germany and Britain in the Sudanese capital Friday, in protest against an anti-Islam film.

"Yesterday I received in Brussels the President of Egypt, Morsi, I had the occasion to express also my strong condemnation for attacks on Islam," Barroso said in a statement.

"Nothing justifies violence against embassies, against diplomatic personnel, and I hope that all the issues can be treated in a peaceful, respectful way."
