WASHINGTON (AP) - Objections by Sudan's government are holding up the security mission of an elite Marine team that the U.S. planned to send to Khartoum.

That word comes Saturday from a U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to disclose details on the troop movement.

The team was being deployed in the wake of violence and protests against the U.S. Embassy in Sudan.

Similar teams were sent to Libya on Wednesday after the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi, and to Yemen on Friday

Demonstrators in Sudan stormed the German Embassy before moving on in buses to the U.S. Embassy, where police used tear gas to stop them scaling the walls. The protests were part of demonstrations across the Muslim world against an anti-Islam film.
