Over the last several days, protestors across the Middle East have taken to the streets outside U.S. embassies in Egypt, Israel, Libya, Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, and Yemen in response to the American-made Internet video called Innocence of Muslims. The controversial low-budget film, which was reportedly made by a California man using a fake persona and may have been made under false pretenses, mocks Islam and portrays Muslims as immoral. Protests kicked off at the U.S. embassy in Cairo on Tuesday, Sept. 11, and escalated dramatically with the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, which resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. Tensions remain high and protests continue to grow; here's a look at the popular unrest sweeping the globe.
