Key Points

  • Protests against an anti-Islam film made in the US spread across the Middle East and North Africa - including Egypt, Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia
  • Demonstrators earlier stormed the grounds of the American embassy in the Yemeni capital Sanaa where they burned a US flag - but were driven back
  • In Cairo, protests erupted for a third day outside the US embassy where over 200 people are said to have been injured
  • The protests followed an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday - in which the ambassador to Libya was killed in a fire
  • US officials have been investigating whether the attack in Benghazi was planned - citing suspicions that a militant jihadist group may have co-ordinated it
