NEW: Protests spread to France; Police secure embassy
PARIS (AP) - Police say they are reinforcing security around the American Embassy in Paris today, a day after hundreds of people gathered outside the building to protest a film produced in the United States that insults the Prophet Muhammad.
Police say more uniformed and plain clothes officers have been put in place on the streets surrounding the embassy.
Officials say 150 people were detained yesterday and had their ID's checked because the protest was unauthorized. One person remains in custody for roughing up an officer.
The demonstration was part of a wave of protests outside U.S. diplomatic posts around the world, some of which have turned violent. The U.S. Ambassador to Libya died in a protest in Benghazi, while protesters have also stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tunis.
