SANAA, Yemen (AP) -- Yemen and Iraq are among the scenes of the latest anti-American protests to erupt over an anti-Islam film. Hundreds of protesters angered by the film stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen's capital today and burned the American flag. In Iraq, several hundred Shiite hardliners protested in their Baghdad stronghold. The leader of an Iranian-backed Shiite militia is threatening anti-U.S. attacks.
