Muslim Riot Storms US Embassy in Yemen after Attacks in Egypt, Libya over Film's Use of Mohammad
The US embassy in Yemen has been stormed, 13th September, in the latest anti-Islam film protest, as protests spread from the Libyan and Egyptian US embassies to other Muslim countries. Police failed to prevent crowds from accessing the compound, with a number of people reported to have been injured. Hundreds were involved in the riots, fuelling fears of a spread similar to the 2005 Mohammad cartoon scandal. US officials had earlier voiced fears that the attacks were pre-planned by Islamist forces.
