Sana'a, Yeman (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Protesters in Yeman are again demonstrating against an anti-Muslim film posted on YouTube. They’ve stormed the U.S. embassy looking to take it over.

The protesters were able to breach the embassy's outer wall and get into the compound.

Once inside they tore down the U.S. flag and burned it.

Security guards fought back the hundreds of demonstrators but demonstrators remain outside the compound walls.

At one point automatic gunfire could be heard, there have been conflicting reports of casualties.
