JNN 16 Sept 2012 Sana : The Yemeni parliament has called for the expulsion of US Marines that were deployed in Sana’a While Sudan has Rejected the US Request to send Marines to the Country in the name of Beefing up the Security at its Embassy, following recent protests outside the US embassy against a blasphemous US-made anti-Islam movie.
The development comes only one day after the Pentagon said on Friday that Washington deployed a Marine unit to Yemen to step up security at the US embassy.
Pentagon spokesman George Little said the move was “partly as a response to events over the past two days at our embassy in Yemen but it’s also in part a precautionary measure.”
Outrage is growing across the Muslim world over the $5-million movie, named Innocence of Muslims, which was financed by more than 100 Zionist Jews.
On Saturday, anti-US protesters once again held a demonstration outside the US embassy in Sana’a. Security forces arrested several demonstrators.
Five protesters were killed by Yemeni security forces in the same place during the two-day period of September 13-14.
Sudan has rejected the US request to send marines to the North African country to boost embassy security amid growing protests against a sacrilegious movie that insults Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).
Demonstrations over the movie have been held across the Muslim world, with the protesters in some countries marching on the US embassies and torching the US flags.
On Tuesday, US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens along with three other staff members were killed in Benghazi after clashes involving a group of angry demonstrators near the consulate building.
Over the past few days, similar demonstrations have also been held in several other countries including Egypt, Libya, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, and the besieged Palestinian territory of Gaza Strip.
