Yemeni police reportedly fired at hundreds of demonstrators storming the US embassy in the capital city of Sanaa. The embassy personnel are currently being taken to a secure location, the Yemen Times reported.

The demonstrators allegedly breached the embassy grounds but were unable to enter the building.

The embassy denied reports that protesters had entered its offices, saying that the clashes took place at the perimeter of the embassy grounds.

Muslims have taken to the streets across the Middle East in protest against a US amateur film satirizing the Prophet Muhammad. US embassies around the world have responded to the unrest by tightening security measures.

On Wednesday, the US ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staffers died when militia members attacked the Benghazi consulate.

Egyptian demonstrators also clashed with police near the US embassy in Cairo.

In a bid to stem the violence, Afghanistan and Pakistan have blocked access to YouTube to prevent the incendiary film from being viewed.
