Protests are continuing in front of the US Embassy in Cairo, one day after thousands of Egyptians demonstrated at the Embassy compound. Protesters on Tuesday gathered to demonstrate against a US-made film said to be defaming the Prophet Mohammed, whose trailer had recently been released on Youtube and translated into Arabic. Protesters breached the walls of the Embassy compound and removed the American flag from a flagpole, replacing it with a black flag associated with Jihadi Islamist groups. Christopher Stevens, a State Department officer at the consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, died in an a later attack along with three other embassy staff after violence erupted over the film. According to an unnamed official the four died after gunmen fired rockets at them.)
