NBC News — Tunisia is the latest country to see anti-American protests in response to an anti-Muslim video uploaded to the internet. Dozens of demonstrators protested outside of the U.S. embassy in Tunis under close eye of security.
Unlike similar protests in Egypt and Libya, thursday's in Tunisia were peaceful. Protests first broke out in the Middle East and North Africa on tuesday after rumors spread that the United States was about to air nationwide an obscure internet video that mocks Islam.
