SANAA, Yemen - A protest at the U.S. Embassy in Yemen's capital is the latest demonstration of its kind in response to an anti-Muslim film.

Hundreds of protesters chanting "death to America" stormed the embassy grounds today and burned the American flag, but didn't enter the main building.

And police in Egypt's capital Cairo have been clashing with protesters near the U.S. Embassy for three days in a row.

Meanwhile, the U.S. has been tightening security at American missions worldwide following the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador and three American members of his staff.

A second U.S. warship is headed to the Libyan coast.

The destroyer USS Laboon moved into position Wednesday.
