U.S. Embassies Beef Up Security

Posted: Updated:

Security is being beefed up at U.S. Embassies around the Middle East and North Africa. 

The State Department is concerned that protests over an American made anti-Muslim film might intensify today following Friday prayers. 

Protests are still underway in Cairo, Egypt where the first demonstrations about the film began.  The protests were then picked up in Libya and Yemen. 

Libyan officials now say terrorists used the protests as a mask to attack the U.S. Consulate.  Four Americans were killed in the attacks.
