CNN's Erin Burnett talks to New York Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof and CNN's Ian Lee reporting from Cairo about the recent protests against the U.S. in the middle east.
New protest turns violent outside U.S. Embassy in Cairo
Riot police fired tear gas and warning shots late Wednesday outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo as protesters tried for a second day to breach the building's perimeter, officials and witnesses said.
The clashes broke out amid heightened tensions at U.S. diplomatic missions in the region following a Tuesday night attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other consular officials dead.
Protesters gathered in Cairo, as they had a day earlier, to demonstrate against a film mocking Islam's prophet.
