Washington has sent Marines to Yemen to help protect its embassy during anti-American protests sparked by an anti-Islam film produced in the US, the Pentagon said.

Over 100 US Marines from the Fleet Anti-terrorism Security Team (FAST) arrived in Yemen on Friday, a day after protesters angry over the insulting movie attacked the US Embassy in Sana’a.

Pentagon spokesman George Little described the deployment as a “precautionary step” amid anti-US protests in the Middle East.

Little added that there were no immediate plans to evacuate the embassy in Yemen, but that security would be stepped up. US missions are on high alert across the Muslim world as anger grows over the movie, which insults Islam’s Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

Earlier in the day, Yemeni security forces opened fire on hundreds of protesters near the US Embassy as they tried to march toward the embassy compound.

Protesters torched the US flag and urged the government to expel the US ambassador in response to the anti-Islam film.

The sacrilegious movie, which is made by an Israeli-American, has sparked protests across the world.

Protesters have attacked US embassies in Libya, Egypt and Sudan over the movie.

The US ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday.


  • Can you not see what is going on? These U.S. Embassy attacks give the U.S. an excuse to bring troops to all the regions involved. First it was Libya and now Yemen! What else do they have in store for the Middle East where they would need military protection set-up? This reminds me of the military intelligence started London riots designed so there was an excuse to beef up riot systems prior to the major civil unrest coming during the Iran war aka World War III. Training military tanker drivers to guard over what few oil supplies get through. None of the populace ever having a clue of the bigger picture. Remember it is King Juan Carlos who covertly rules over the Middle East and North Africa via his Knights Templar ‘King of Jerusalem’ title making him the Protector of the Holy Sites of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. One of arms of control over the region is his Union for the Mediterranean based in Barcelona and Malta. The Arab-League serve Carlo’s every order like the dictatorship filth it is.

    Excellent exposing. US Navy will control all North Africa, and the US army can bomb
    Iran or Syria. Maybe Israel could be under attack of Muslim Brotherhood.

    What is your oppinion?
