Protests over anti-Muslim You-tube film continue

Violent protests against the US embassies and consulates because of the anti-Muslim film that was posted online that denigrates the Prophet Mohammed have continued for a third day in Egypt, Yemen and Bangladesh. A large scale protest has been called for Friday in Cairo.

Travellers should exercise extreme caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations at this time in the Middle East since they are likely to become violent without notice.
