NBC News — Anti U.S. protests triggered by an obscure anti-Islam internet video have made their way to Asia. Large protests were held outside of the U.S. embassies in Indonesia and Malaysia friday morning. There was a heavy police presence outside both embassies.
Unlike similar protests in the Middle East and North Africa, demonstrators in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur were peaceful. Protests first broke out in Egypt on tuesday after rumors spread that the United States was going to play nationwide the anti-Muslim Youtube video as part of 9-11 commemorations
