The U.S. Embassy has been attacked by a mob in the Yemeni capital of Sana'a, with "protesters" who ripped down the American flag.
Hundreds have reportedly stormed into the embassy compound, tearing off the embassy's sign from the outer wall. Gunfire was allegedly exchanged between security guards and protesters, according to various media reports, with an unknown number of wounded reported.
The mob tore down the American flag and ripped it to shreds before putting it to the torch. They also set fire to a building, but allegedly were forced to retreat while trying to trash computers and furniture.
