The United States has deployed 250 US troops in the Yemeni capital Sana’a to boost security at the US Embassy in response to the recent violent upheavals over an anti-Islam movie. On Friday, the Pentagon announced that it had sent Marines to Yemen after demonstrators stormed the US Embassy in Sana’a in protest over an anti-Islam film made in the US. The Yemeni parliament condemned the deployment, and MPs expressed strong opposition to the presence of US troops in their country. Hundreds of demonstrators stormed the US Embassy compound in Sana’a last week. AGB/HGL
