Yemen protesters repelled after storming US Embassy

Protesters angry over an obscure film critical of Islam's Prophet Muhammad stormed the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa, Yemen, on Thursday, as unrest that led to the deaths of a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Libya spread to other countries in the region.

Yemeni security forces fired into the air as demonstrators reached the embassy's grounds, according to The Associated Press and Reuters. The New York Times reported that protesters managed to set fire to a building inside the compound but were forced by security forces to pull back after trying to take furniture and computers.The protesters' anger was triggered by the amateurish anti-Islamic film a trailer for which appeared on YouTube, although U.S. authorities said that they could not rule out the possibility that al-Qaida-inspired Islamist militants had already planned the attack in Libya's second city to coincide with Sept. 11.
