nti-U.S. protests continued to rage across North Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia on Friday. Confrontations between protesters and police have been reported in Yemen, Sudan, and Tunisia. Other protests were reported in Afghanistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Lebanon, Kuwait, Iran, and the West Bank and Gaza. Much of the focus Friday was on the rioting in Tunisia, where protesters have reportedly breached the embassy walls, and a large cloud of black smoke was seen rising from the embassy. Protesters in Tunisia have taken down the U.S. flag from the embassy and replaced it with a black flag. Police have fired tear gas into the crowd in Tunisia as well. In Yemen (pictured), CNN reports that a U.S. Marine Corps security team is being sent to protect the embassy.
Update: Tunisia's official news agency reports that two people have died and 29 others have been injured in protests outside the U.S. Embassy in Tunis.
