Anti-US Riots Continue in Egypt (Videos)

In Egypt, hundreds of protesters continued to riot overnight outside the US Embassy in Cairo. A number of rioters and policemen were injured.

The US has stepped up security around US embassies and Cosulates worldwide in response to this latest round of Islamic violence against it.

Last year, on September 9, 2011, Egyptians rioters surrounded the Israeli Embassy in Egypt nearly killing the personnel inside. Egyptian commandos managed to hold back the rioters long enough for the trapped Israeli personnel to be rescued. Prime Minister Netanyahu had to personally call up President Obama to ask him to intervene on Israel’s behalf with the Egyptian government to save the Israeli lives.

In August 2012, 75 out of 76 of those Egyptian rioters were sentenced to one year in jail, but their jail terms were suspended. The 76th man, Omar Afifi, fled Egypt.
