Protests over anti-Islam video grip Middle East and spread beyond | GlobalPost

Protest activity over anti-Islam footage produced in the United States swelled today, with reports of unrest in Egypt, Yemen, Afghanistan, Israel, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Bahrain, Qatar, India’s Kashmir, Bangladesh, and Indonesia.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood earlier called for a “Million Man March” against the video today, but reportedly canceled the event an hour beforehand — a move that may have been a bid to mollify the US as protests take an overwhelmingly anti-American tone.

Hundreds nonetheless turned out outside the US embassy in Cairo today, leading to skirmishes with security forces, according to the Associated Press.
