Anti-American Protests Still Spreading

The U.S. embassy in Bangkok is closed ahead of a protest scheduled there and protests have started in parts of Kashmir, while continuing elsewhere in Pakistan


Protests against an anti-Islam film spread to Bangkok, Thailand and Indian-controlled Kashmir Tuesday, while an insurgent group in Afghanistan claimed responsibility for a suicide attack it says was a response to the video.

The U.S. Embassy in Bangkok closed at midday, ahead of a planned protest, but said it was not aware of any specific threat to Americans.
