And Again: Protesters storm US Embassy in Yemen

Breaking on AP:

Protesters angered by an anti-Islam film have stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa.

The protesters were on the embassy’s grounds but did not enter the building housing the offices.

Before storming the embassy compound on Thursday, the demonstrators removed the embassy’s sign on the outer wall and set tires ablaze. Once inside the compound, they brought down the U.S. flag and burned it.

It’s (almost) 3:00 AM — and the president is either in Vegas recovering from a “tough day” of fundraising, or returning from thereabouts.

More reports on the roof caving in, as the story develops.
