nti-American protests in Cairo, sparked by a Prophet Mohammed-bashing video, entered a fourth day on Friday, as the U.S. braced for more violence in the Muslim world. Authorities are concerned there could be even more riots after Friday's noon prayers, a time when protests in the Middle East and North Africa often take place. Demonstrators were seen on Friday throwing rocks and gasoline bombs near the U.S. Embassy in Egypt's capital. Police fired back with tear gas. More than 220 people have been injured, according to state media. Meanwhile, several U.S. diplomatic missions around the world issued warnings to Americans about demonstrations that could turn violent.
