It has been a week filled with violence, protests and chaos in the Middle East and Northern Africa. Angry protesters in numerous Muslim countries are burning buildings and demonstrating against the U.S. and an alleged anti-Islam film, according to the Associated Press.
On September 11, an attack against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, left the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three Americans dead.
Today, protests have erupted after Friday's weekly prayer, including in Egypt, Sudan, Tunisia, Pakistan and Yemen, the Associated Press reports.
The AP is also reporting today that protesters "smashed into the German Embassy in the Sudanese capital and security forces in Egypt and Yemen fired tear gas and clashed with protesters to keep them away from U.S. embassies."
According to reports, the U.S. sent about 50 marines to Libya following the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate.
