Various of barbed wire blocking street leading to embassy STORYLINE Heavy security was in place around the United States Embassy in Cairo on Thursday, after a crowd attacked the building reportedly to protest against an anti-Islamic film produced in the US. It followed an attack on a US Consulate in Libya during which the US ambassador, Chris Stevens, and three American members of his staff were killed. US President Barack Obama ordered increased security at US missions around the world after the killings and angry protests in Cairo. The four diplomats were killed on Tuesday as protesters overran and burned the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. In the Egyptian capital, the American Embassy was breached by protesters, and the US flag was ripped down, although no deaths were reported. US officials are also investigating whether the attack in Libya was a terrorist strike planned to mark the 11th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001. Initial reports were that both the Libya and Egypt events had been motivated by anger over the anti-Muslim film made in the United States. Obama made separate calls on Tuesday evening to the presidents of Libya and Egypt, urging them to work with the US to ensure the safety of diplomatic personnel. Obama told Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi "he rejects efforts to denigrate Islam, but underscored that there is never any justification for violence against innocents and acts that endanger American personnel and facilities," the White House said.
