Protesters storm US compound


Chanting "death to America," hundreds of protesters angered by an anti-Islam film stormed the US Embassy compound in Yemen's capital and burned the American flag today, the latest in a series of attacks on American diplomatic missions in the Middle East.The protesters breached the usually tight security around the embassy and reached the compound grounds but did not enter the main building housing the offices.Once inside the compound, they brought down the US flag, burned it and replaced it with a black banner bearing Islam's declaration of faith - "There is no God but Allah."
