The Yemeni security forces were able to secure the US embassy after angry protesters stormed it to condemn a video considered abusive to Islam, sources at the gate of the embassy said.

But smoke is still rising from one of the embassy's building. The protesters who  climbed the wall of the embassy were able set fire to the building.

"Now almost every one is out, and firing is ceased," said Yahya Yousef, a resident whose house is opposite the gate of the Embassy.

"We saw protesters getting out with some stuff from inside," he said referring to plundering committed by some protesters.
