Hundreds of Yemeni demonstrators angered over a film mocking Islam have stormed the grounds of the U.S. Embassy in Sana'a, continuing a wave of anti-American protests sweeping the region.

The mob torched a number of diplomatic vehicles Thursday as security guards used water cannons and warning shots in a bid to drive them out of the heavily fortified compound. A number of people were reportedly injured.
